HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Edge Hill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Edge Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Edge Hill property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Edge Hill Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor take into account on a stucco rendered regency house in Edge Hill which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a smooth and flat solid render. Commonly stucco render is applied to underlying brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. It is very aesthetic and was often applied to Victorian and Regency properties. It is similar to plaster and mortar in its constituency. it can be problematic and Edge Hill Home Buyers Suveys commonly show any number of problems such as when it is exposed to driving rain which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues might result

from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-covering problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a house in the region a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including industrial refuse disposal. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries include structurally instability .

Homebuyer reports in Edge Hill will examine any structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Liverpool Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this property is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our HomeBuyer Report check for signs of flood damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a house will be secure against water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for properties in flood-risk areas. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
