HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Burghfield Common and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Burghfield Common property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Burghfield Common property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Burghfield Common Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a property valuation and a rebuilding cost included in the cost of the survey. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will factor in area knowledge as well as other factors about the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and will use key assumptions like the property is connected to mains services such as water.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor also assumes that there aren't any problematic legal problems like there being no on going disputes. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Further area assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to any environmental issues like flood plains, which will also be factored in.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a building near to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: commercial waste material. Of course nobody would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health problems for example congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Wokingham Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
