HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Clophill and which would be cheaper?

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

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

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Clophill property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a house proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: non-hazardous waste material disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include heavy metals .

Surveyors in Clophill will note structural defects connected with the site. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Central Bedfordshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a house in Clophill. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the Clophill property surveyor look for?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. Many properties can be hiding serious issues with the roof. From ridge flashing to gables, every part of the roof should be investigated. Factors like badly installed felting are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as replacing rotten rafters or soffits) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a contractor for the job itself.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the unmodernised property we intend to purchase we think we noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses; does Homebuyer Report in Clophill go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Clophill your RICS surveyor should usually remark on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. The RICS surveyor is required to report on concerns such as checking the condition of any fitted electrical appliances, e.g. storage heaters or the location of the meter. Examining the evidence of any recent PIR handled by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.
