HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Chase Side property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Chase Side property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a maisonette proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including inert refuse. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Chase Side surveyors will consider structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets and Enfield Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a property and the vendor has confirmed that it has been built with Doulting stone. What issues should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Stanton Moor Sandstone. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Chase Side property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used in the construction of doors and windows. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may be need of upkeep. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Purchasers renovating Chase Side property should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. To source stone quarried in Chase Side, you can contact local suppliers.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a barn conversion. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

The age of a structure can often be problematic, and Chase Side homes featuring traditional methods can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can end up costing more than initially budgeted. If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with the Chase Side surveyor for more detail.
