About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Woburn

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Woburn and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Woburn property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Woburn property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a home next to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including industrial waste material. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health issues like birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Woburn will consider structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Central Bedfordshire Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I should be aware of if buying a converted flat in Woburn in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by the local authority. Your surveyor must possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and any effect they have with the property and its value. The value of homes is generally significantly higher owing to them retaining original features. However many conservation areas have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. ugly satellite dishes

RICS surveyors can be expected to note if the property looks like it may be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted as part of the legal process. Unapproved adjustments to the building will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer.
