HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Ainsdale and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Ainsdale property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Ainsdale property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a house next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including domestic refuse. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include methane gas generation. Potential health issues such as congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Ainsdale will note structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases and West Lancashire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The home we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Does the Building Survey cover this?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including groundwater level variations. In Ainsdale's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable small cracks in the bedroom wall, to complete structural failure. A Ainsdale surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.

House Prices

I would like to purchase a property in Ainsdale (PR8). The vendor is asking £185, 987. What will a Ainsdale chartered surveyor evaluate in the process of a RICS survey ?

The means house prices completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £161, 787, which is £24, 200 less than the asking price. The average factoring in houses and flats was £151, 848. 6, Chesterfield Close, Southport, Sefton, Merseyside, PR8 3JL a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £171, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an independent house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part.

The local surveyor should go to the site as well as considering the wealth of area factors that have a bearing on the value of property.
