Home Buyers Survey in Henlow

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Henlow and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Henlow property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Henlow property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that the had been a problem with lost tile pegs - What advice would the Henlow house surveyor give in their report?

Questions like this are often asked of building surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property may be exposed to issues with the roof like. From clay tiles to ceiling joists, every element of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a flat close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including domestic refuse. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Henlow will note structural problems connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Central Bedfordshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
