HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Alnmouth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Alnmouth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Alnmouth property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a maisonette close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms including commercial refuse disposal. No one really wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Homebuyer reports in Alnmouth will find structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Alnwick Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we should check on when planning to buy a flat in Alnmouth near a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local council. Surveyors in Alnmouth need to have knowledge of local issues and the connection they have on the property. Property Prices tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents which is down to them being unspoilt.

Surveyors can be expected to note if the property might be is designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unapproved developments to the building will also be advised, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I intend to buy it looked like there is an old fuse board , does a Alnmouth Homebuyer Report write anything on the wiring and fusebox?

During a Alnmouth Building Survey the RICS surveyor will usually remark on the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsafe state of repair.

This should include a visual inspection of the open areas of the wiring on top of areas e.g. checking the nature of any electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should be part of the Homebuyer report in Alnmouth.
