HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Hampton Hill property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Hampton Hill property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the mid-century home we intend to buy we noticed that there was some evidence of an overload of the fuses - does a Hampton Hill survey write anything on electrical defects?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Hampton Hill the surveyor should usually add detail on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that they are in an unsafe state of repair. This should include an overview of exposed parts of the wiring as well as issues like whether there is an on-peak/off-peak mains supply. .

Examining the documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any documents from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey in Hampton Hill .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advocate that a Periodic Inspection be conducted every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages to go for the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys are no longer offered by Surveyors and the new type of survey which is classified as the Building Survey is now available. If you are intending to buy an unusual Hampton Hill home such as a tatty house, this is now the correct survey to choose. This non prescribed format of report details often critical advice in relation to the houses construction and uses in addition to any technical details after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. External buildings (if permanent) will also be surveyed.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a maisonette near to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. hazardous rubbish disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will find any structural issues linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Richmond upon Thames Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
