HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Carisbrooke and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Carisbrooke property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Carisbrooke property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a building close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including domestic rubbish. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health problems for example spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural defects connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Isle of Wight Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would be advised to be wary of when purchasing a converted flat in Carisbrooke inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect they have with the property and its value. The price of property will likely be inflated which is down to conservation areas being in good order. However a growing number have been neglected and are in poor condition e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors are expected inform you if the planned purchase is or might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are carried out by your legal representation. Out of keeping extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised, however these should be concern for the solicitor.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the argument for choosing the full structural survey when investing in a defective terraced house near Carisbrooke instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit often called Structural Surveys by many, these comprehensive surveys are now entitled Building Surveys A HomeBuyer Report is enough if buying a non period unmodified Carisbrooke home made out of conventional building materials. The RICS Building Survey is the most suitable survey to opt for the house described. Shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, the chartered surveyors report will be posted to the prospective buyer detailing any notable information about the construction materials used on the house.

There are certain no go areas with a Building Survey as a qualified surveyor is not in a position to open up the fabric of the of the Carisbrooke property e.g. lifting up floor coverings.
