HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Adlington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Adlington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Adlington property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a house in the region a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms for example: non-hazardous refuse. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns for example abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Adlington will find any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and Bolton Local Authority and advise you .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Adlington house with Portland stone walls. Are there any related issues that need to be investigated?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Red St.Bees Sandstone to Westwood Ground Limestone. Issues including deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled Adlington buildings.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. James Booth (Bolton) Ltd, New Haulage Depot, Manchester Road, Westhoughton, Bolton, Greater Manchester, BL6 3QH, which quarries Clay & Shale, for details. Call 01942 818800 for more information.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would be advised to be conscious of when planning to buy an extended house in Adlington near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local authorities. Surveyors in Adlington must possess local knowledge of relevant local area issues and the relation may have with the building and its value. House prices will probably be inflated as a result of the areas resisting change. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in disrepair for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

RICS surveyors are trained to tell you if the house is or might be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted by your legal adviser. Unapproved extensions to the building will also be reported in the Adlington survey, however these should be concern for your legal adviser. Keoghs Llp are a local firm situated at 2 The Parklands, Bolton, Greater Manchester, BL6 4SE and may be able to give you some pointers. Tel: 01204 677000
