Home Buyers Survey in Heddon On The Wall

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Heddon On The Wall and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Heddon On The Wall property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Heddon On The Wall property's general condition along with advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a house near to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms including non-hazardous rubbish disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health problems such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases and Northumberland Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
