Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a maisonette in the region a rubbish dump

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Dorchester On Thames, and think we saw signs of pests in the living room - What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for pest problems may include use of insecticides and destruction of tainted materials. If you believe rats, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would need to be conscious of if intending to buy a period property in Dorchester On Thames inside a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority. Dorchester On Thames surveyors are required by RICS to possess knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing they have on the property. The value of homes will likely be greater owing to them being preserved. However many have been neglected and are in poor condition for example - the huge increase in street clutter

RICS surveyors are expected tell you if the house looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved extensions to the building will also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your conveyancer.
