HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Aston Clinton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Aston Clinton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Aston Clinton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses in Aston Clinton generate lots of maintenance costs for purchasers? Are there any matters that need to be investigated? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

There are a wide range of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Defects such as erosion of pointing joints affect many stone-walled houses. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Window frame

In a Aston Clinton HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Air holes creating draughts around window frames is an example. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for property purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Aston Clinton house. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but this may not be urgent.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a building proximate to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. industrial rubbish disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include chemicals like dioxins. Health problems such as abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Aston Clinton will note any structural issues resulting from the site. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Dacorum Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
