About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Leeswood

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Leeswood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Leeswood property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Leeswood property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are intending to buy a property in Leeswood, does the residential surveyor inquire into any flooding damage?

Flooding in Leeswood can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The property surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier if the Leeswood house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a maisonette close to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous waste. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include structurally instability. Health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Leeswood will find any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Landmark databases as well as Flintshire Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a building in Leeswood - How do we investigate further?

Scare stories about property infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as dust mites as minor annoyances. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected property may not always be easy to identify.

For example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Treatment for pests may include professional cleaning. Your Leeswood surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.
