HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Hook and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Hook property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Hook property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a house proximate to Bramshill Landfill, Eversley, Rg27 0rf near Plough Lane and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including domestic waste. A huge number of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people in England and Wales including Hook. Concerns might include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health issues like cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Hook will consider any structural defects connected with the site. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Hart Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we should on guard for when intending to buy a flat in Hook in conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council.

Your surveyor must have local knowledge of relevant local area factors and any bearing they have on the building. Property values tends to be more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas being unspoilt.

Property surveyors are trained to inform you whether the building looks to be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Out of keeping extensions to the building may also be advised, however these should be concern for your legal adviser.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the home we plan to buy. Will a house surveyor look into this?

Property are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies to insect infestation can include removal of infected furniture. Your Hook surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.
