HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Lancashire and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Lancashire property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer exhaustive analysis of the Lancashire property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond upkeep guidance - can a surveyor in Lancashire assist?

Lancashire residential property with brick walls can show signs of distinct issues, including frost damaged pointing and spalling. Your house surveyor will mention these. A serious concern is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Aspen Builders Ltd of 6 Egerton Av, Warrington, WA1 3BY on 01925 825460.

Buyers in Lancashire should consider that a broad range of techniques can be found across the UK. E.g. stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this residence is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our surveyor consider flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Heavy rain, burst riverbanks and clogged drainage could all cause major flooding. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The residential surveyor may ask the residents about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a home proximate to Castle House Farm Sand Quarry and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous waste. A huge number of sites affect many thousands of people in England including Lancashire. Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Lancashire will examine structural issues linked to the site. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database and Ribble Valley Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
