HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Bishopston and which is cheaper?

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

If the Bishopston property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Bishopston property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Bishopston Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a boundary wall)

Bishopston Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a cost of reinstatement as standard. To work out the property's value the surveyor will combine in depth understanding of the Bishopston market and other considerations about the property for instance: state of repair.

The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors will ignore things like sales incentives.

Further Bishopston assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to Bishopston environmental concerns like pig farms, also being considered.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a flat next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including non-hazardous waste. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include methane gas generation. Health concerns like abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Bishopston will notice structural issues connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Bristol Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building mentioned that the had been issues with blocked valley gutters. Which issues relating to the structure's roof will be looked into?

This often causes anxiety for Bishopston homebuyers. Houses across Bishopston may be exposed to roofing woes. From the dormers to the ridge flashing, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

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 local contractor with accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.
