HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Lozells and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Lozells property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Lozells property's general condition as well as including information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older dovecot in Lozells. Will the age of the house be a concern?

A building's age can create issues for homeowners, and Buildings constructed with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could be a good opportunity to discuss lowering

the purchase price to cover repair costs.If the building you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact the chartered surveyor for more detail.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a building next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. hazardous rubbish. No one really wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include hazardous chemicals. Potential health concerns such as downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will note any structural issues linked to the site. Your solicitor will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Birmingham Local Authority and advise you .

Chimney stacks

In a Lozells HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E1 - Chimney stacks' refer to?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a house or flat. Red, amber and green ratings give home buyers indicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

Elements of the property covered by this section are visually inspected, using binoculars if access to the roof cannot be arranged. Inadequate fire stopping is one defect applicable to this section.
