HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Leyland and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Leyland property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Leyland property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a maisonette in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. hazardous refuse disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include heavy metals. Health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Leyland will examine structural issues resulting from the site. Your legal representative will carry out conveyancing searches of the Landmark databases and South Ribble Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a ground floor flat in Leyland, does the property surveyor inquire into flooding?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can all result in extensive water damage caused by flooding, and buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flooding begins, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home in Leyland lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will the Chartered Surveyor be looking for on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Leyland which we wish to buy.

Stucco is a form of solid render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to a smooth stone like appearance. It is very attractive and was common on some Georgian buildings. it can be problematic and Leyland Building Surveys sometimes detail issues e.g. when movement of the wall can lead to cracks. Other issues might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Re-coating Stucco problems may be expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
