Home Buyers Survey in Leicestershire

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Leicestershire and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Leicestershire property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Leicestershire property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a building in the region Lount Landfill Site near Nottingham Road and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites take many forms including hazardous refuse disposal. A huge number of sites affect 100, 000's people throughout the UK including Leicestershire. Risks include tars and other hazardous materials. Health issues like gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Leicestershire will consider structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Leicester Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us at our old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we do about roof repairs?

Leicestershire houses in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems, such as cracked and loose slates or tiles. Every element should be checked, e.g. rafters. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a poor asphalt covering.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist in Leicestershire can provide one. Contact Paul Lynch Roofing Ltd of 122 Albert Promenade, Loughborough, LE11 1RF on 01509 233204 for an estimate.

Substandard guttering

On the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' include?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how concerning each aspect of the report is. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. The drainage system is inspected visually. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report blocked drains below ground. Poor quality or inefficient downspouts is an example.
