HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Chellaston and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chellaston property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications on the Chellaston property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Chellaston property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we need to check out if buying a converted house in Chellaston near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local authorities. Your surveyor must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect may have with the home and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, greater owing to conservation areas being preserved. However a large number have been neglected and are in a state e.g. out of keeping extensions

Surveyors are trained to inform you whether the property looks like it may be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised by your legal representation. Unauthorised changes to the property may be reported in the Chellaston survey, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us - What advice would the property surveyor in Chellaston give in their report?

This is often asked by buyers in Chellaston who know that homes can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheathing. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing contractor for the job itself.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of if buying a property in the region a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: hazardous waste material. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Risks include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Chellaston RICS surveyors will note structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to South Derbyshire Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
