HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Debenham and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Debenham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Debenham property's condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when purchasing a building close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms including commercial waste disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Health issues for example congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Debenham RICS surveyors will find any structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Mid Suffolk Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't understand the justification for choosing a full structural survey if purchasing a converted mid terrace property in Debenham as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly referred to as the Full Structural Survey by some, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been given a new name by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the correct term is actually now the Building Survey. Choose the RICS Building Survey for this property. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a 60 year old or less unmodified house of typical construction materials and methods.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Debenham home, what are common defects an red light rating impacting conservatory and porches?

Severe defects impacting the Debenham home are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a home's value. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. If a Debenham home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

For a Debenham house, one issue is unsuitable carpet used on exposed or external areas. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen should also be reported on.
