HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Little Hampton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Little Hampton property's state of repair along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there might be asbestos wall panelling concealed in the flat. What is asbestos, is there a danger, can it be easily dealt with and Should we pull out?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including shed roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in soil vent pipes.

All forms (including white) are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken not to displace the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos and should offer advice.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a maisonette proximate to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: domestic waste material disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns such as gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Little Hampton surveyors will find structural problems linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Wychavon Local Authority and advise you .

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Little Hampton house what can 'E7' refer to?

Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) should also be reported on. Rot and insect damage to a porch or conservatory's structure is an example of this. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.
