Home Buyers Survey in Sandbanks

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Sandbanks and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Sandbanks property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the Sandbanks property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you comprehensive details of the Sandbanks property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a property close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including domestic waste disposal. No one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include heavy metals. Health concerns for example abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Sandbanks will flag up structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Poole Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor check the safety of the gas supply?

Your surveyor will locate and visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the meter location/position at the home, in addition to gas associated appliances like ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Sandbanks local surveyor will not remove the external fittings or housings nor will the surveyor do any tests on the system. Needless to say, gas can be fatal, should you have any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Sandbanks. What warnings would a Sandbanks surveyor give? What impact do Sandbanks environmental conditions have?

Brick-built Sandbanks properties demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also show signs of a number of issues. This could be anything from sulphate expansion to lack of a damp proof course. One particularly serious issue is frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely. Moses A should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 01978 842416 or Liverpool Ho/Hall St, Rhosllanerchrugog, Wrexham, LL14 2LE.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall, to the rare, such sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall.
