HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Huyton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Huyton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension on the property, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Huyton property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I would need to look into if buying a period property in Huyton near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Surveyors in Huyton are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of local area factors and the bearing may have on the home. The price of property is typically greater because of the areas being preserved. However many have been neglected and are in a state of neglect e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors are expected tell you whether the property is or might be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised extensions to the building should be commented on, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor advise on the safety of the gas supply?

The surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected for instance, as well as gas related fixtures for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). Fittings however, won't be detached. The gas system won't be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas is potentially fatal, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a home close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including non-hazardous waste disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Huyton RICS surveyors will consider structural issues resulting from the site. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark database as well as Knowsley Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
