About Us

Home Buyers Survey in St Nicholas

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in St Nicholas and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the St Nicholas property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works on the St Nicholas property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the St Nicholas property's condition along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors we would be advised to on guard for when intending to buy a home in St Nicholas inside a conservation area ?

There are many thousands of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Your surveyor must possess knowledge of relevant local factors and the relation they have with the home. Property values will be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them retaining original features. However many conservation areas have fallen into disrepair e.g. ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to report whether the building is or might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out by your solicitor. Unapproved extensions to the building should be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a house proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: domestic waste. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns such as birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in St Nicholas will note structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Vale of Glamorgan Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
