HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Castleton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Castleton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

When acquiring an extended Edwardian end of terrace home, is it best to get a full structural survey?

A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a non period Castleton property of normal building materials. You should be aware of certain caveats exist with any residential survey as your local Castleton surveyor will not be able to

force or open up the structure of the Castleton house or inspect any part that could risk personal injury.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a home close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including hazardous waste material. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include heavy metals. Health concerns like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine any structural problems connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Rochdale Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Stone block wall damage

Can Doulting stone-built properties be difficult to repair. Are there specific related issues to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Westwood Ground Limestone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Repair advice often includes repointing mortar with a suitable material.
