Which Building Survey should you select?

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Maryport and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Maryport property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Maryport property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a property close to a rubbish landfill

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including inert waste. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include complex organic chemicals. Health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Maryport will flag up structural problems connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Allerdale Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Building Surveys on houses

I am acquiring a doer-upper Edwardian cottage home in Maryport, should I spend a bit more on a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now known as Building Surveys. Go for a Building Survey in relation to the house outlined. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a post 1950s unmodified house of conventional building materials. There are a number restrictions exist with a Building Survey as the Maryport based surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the structure of the Maryport house for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Maryport house built Clipsham stone. Are there specific issues to consider?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Totternhoe Limestone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion will vary with the particular type of stone.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Thomas Armstrong Aggregates Ltd, Workington Road, Flimby, Maryport, Cumbria, CA15 8RY, which quarries Slag (inc. BOS and EAF , for details. Call 01900 068114 for more information.
