HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Burnham Market and which is cheaper?

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

If the Burnham Market property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Burnham Market property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a maisonette proximate to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert rubbish disposal. No one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health issues like abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Burnham Market surveyors will consider structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to North Norfolk Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Flat and sloping roofs will be checked by the surveyor, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. Exposed roof felt is one example. Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed. Elements of Section E marked as condition rating 1 may however still require regular maintenance. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a house. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor examine the safety of the gas supply?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually check out any easily accessible parts of the system. This means things like the routing of any gas pipes as part of the survey, as well as gas connected fittings for example - chimney breasts. However, the Burnham Market local surveyor won't actually remove gas fittings nor will the surveyor do any tests on the system or appliances. Gas can be unsafe and if there are any worries about gas or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas safe engineer.

Regulations ensure that landlords have to commission appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .
