HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bedford Hill and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Bedford Hill property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Bedford Hill property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a home next to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms including industrial rubbish disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include structurally instability. Potential health issues like congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Bedford Hill will note structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database and Lambeth Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems at our old property. Which issues relating to the roofing will be checked?

Bedford Hill properties in good condition can often hide issues with the roof like. From rafters to collar ties, the whole roof will be considered. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does damp weather have on our new Bedford Hill building? Will the Bedford Hill surveyor report on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact wet weather can have on properties is not given more thought by purchasers. If you have only seen the home in the Summer, problems are unlikely to be visible, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost.
