HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Longton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you comprehensive details of the Longton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Will the Longton surveyor advise on the state of the gas flues?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system.

Gas is potentially hazardous and if there are any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.

Landfill site near home

Risks might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health problems like gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Longton will consider structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as South Ribble Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Longton, and think we saw signs of vermin in the kitchen. What advice should we get?

Property are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, pest problems can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. An affected house may not always be easy to identify.

For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for pest problems may include insecticides. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
