Home Buyers Survey in Woodside

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Woodside and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Woodside property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Woodside property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Ham Hill stone-built homes be hard to upkeep. What defects must we watch out for?

Purchasers in Woodside should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Issues including deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled property. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include replacing missing or badly worn stones.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Woodside include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Woodside property will include a valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To properly appraise the value of the property the valuer will factor in local Woodside market factors and other things about the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings.

Additional local Woodside area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant local environmental issues like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a house proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: inert refuse disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Surveyors in Woodside will notice structural defects connected with the site. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as Croydon Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
