HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Campden Hill and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Campden Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Campden Hill property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a property I am meaning to lease, it appeared that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - does a the surveyor report on the electrical system?

When preparing a Campden Hill Building Survey your RICS surveyor should usually mention the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a hazardous condition. This will include a non invasive examination of the unconcealed areas of the wiring on top of areas like verifying the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or verifying the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on

any documents from the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a maisonette proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous waste material disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries might include methane gas generation. Health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Campden Hill will notice structural problems linked to the site. Your solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Kensington and Chelsea Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Campden Hill properties at risk, and does a Campden Hill surveyor search for indications of flooding damage?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing steams can all result in extensive flood damage, and house buyers and owners are understandably concerned. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. The surveyor may ask the residents if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood alerts were found for Campden Hill.
