    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice when purchasing a home constructed from conventional building materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Avonmouth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Avonmouth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give comprehensive details of the Avonmouth property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get an instant Avonmouth House Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when buying a building proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including domestic waste. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include hazardous chemicals. Health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will consider structural defects linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Bristol Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a house in Avonmouth, does the surveyor investigate possible flooding?

The lives of many residents in Avonmouth and across the UK have been seriously affected by floods; sensible owners and buyers in Avonmouth are right to consider precautions. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residential property in question is in danger. In addition, the house survey may recommend maintenance.Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The RICS surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier if the house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

The alert level for the Little Avon River and other rivers and streams in the Vale of Berkeley, near to Avonmouth of 'No warnings', was recently set by the Environment Agency on 27 Dec 2012.

House Prices

I intend to acquire a property in Avonmouth (BS11). The vendor is asking £189, 289. What things does a Avonmouth qualified RICS surveyor take into account when carrying out a home buyers survey ?

Any number of issues which could have a bearing on the price of property ranging from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to the condition of shared common parts. As an indicator, one can try to compare with prices achieved in Avonmouth at the same time for comparable properties.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £175, 689, which is £13, 600 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £160, 188. 107, Station Road, Shirehampton, Bristol, City Of Bristol, City Of Bristol, BS11 9XA a detached property sold for £499, 950 .

Your chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).
