HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Fulford and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Fulford property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications on the Fulford property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Fulford property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On a Fulford HomeBuyer Report what impact can a an red light rating have on 'E8 - Other joinery and finishes' ?

For a Fulford house, one issue is rusted metal sidings. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Any timber or PVC cladding fixed to the main walling are reported on. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. They can include defects which

compromise the structural integrity of a Fulford home. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for property purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Fulford home. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older farmhouse in Fulford. Will maintenance costs be higher?

For houses in Fulford built before the 20th Century, age can worry purchasers. Fulford homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. Contact your surveyor for further advice.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a maisonette close to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill take many forms including domestic refuse disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include heavy metals. Health issues for example cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural defects connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as York Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
