Which building survey is the right choice for my prospective home purchase in Chilwell?

    A Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Chilwell) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor and is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard , for example wychert buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Chilwell and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Chilwell property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works on the Chilwell property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Chilwell property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Chilwell?

Regular rainfall is common in Chilwell and across the country, but high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on a structure are rarely considered properly by house purchasers. If you have investigated the home in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that gutters are worth a closer look include rusted iron elements. If you are worried, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

In most cases, issues with rainwater goods are generally easy to resolve, if caught early, unless they are not cared for. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a building next to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: non-hazardous waste disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include chemicals like dioxins. Health issues for example spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Chilwell will notice any structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Broxtowe Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Conservatory

For the Chilwell HomeBuyer Report, what impact will a Condition rating 2 have on conservatory and porches?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

One example issue could be steps which slope. This section covers conservatories and porches. Inappropriate use of internal doors in doorways leading outside will also be mentioned in the report.
