HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gaydon and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Gaydon property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Gaydon property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the argument to go for the full structural survey when acquiring a derelict mid terrace townhouse in Gaydon as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes called the Full Structural Survey, this survey is no longer offered as it has been superseded by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the right name is now the Building Survey. When buying an altered Gaydon house like a neglected house, this is now the most suitable choice of home survey. It will provide full and important details on the property's construction in conjunction with any technical details, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

There are one or two no go areas with any survey because a qualified RICS surveyor is not in a position to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Gaydon house - such as removing the

contents of cupboards. External sports facilities (buildings not the facilities themselves) will also be reported on.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the home I intend to buy I noticed that there was no RCD on the fuse board , will a surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

When conducting a Gaydon Homebuyer Report a qualified surveyor should report on the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state. A Home surveyor should also potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of fixed electrical appliances, for example heaters. Inspecting any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Gaydon.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician on the property will form part of the survey.

The IEE strongly advise that an electrical system check need be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when purchasing a building near to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include structurally instability. Potential health concerns like gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Gaydon RICS surveyors will note any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Stratford-on-Avon Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .
