HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Melton Mowbray and which is cheaper?

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

If the Melton Mowbray property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Melton Mowbray property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Melton Mowbray property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of if buying a home near to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert refuse disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Health concerns for example downs syndrome have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Melton Mowbray will find structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Melton Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a renovated farmhouse. What consequences will the property's cladding have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Melton Mowbray would like to own a house with personality, like a Tudor home. Vernacular architecture, however, can worry purchasers. Property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs. Mention this to your building surveyor for further advice. Erected between 1330 and 1664, 5 King Street in Melton Mowbray is a traditional hall of the time.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw a property I am hoping to lease I think we saw that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - will a Homebuyer Report in Melton Mowbray write anything on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Melton Mowbray a RICS surveyor will usually mention the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a poor state. This should include a general look-over of the superficial parts of the wiring and other possible problems relating to things like verifying the state of any fitted electrical appliances, for example storage radiators or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician should form part of the survey in Melton Mowbray.

The IEE recommend a PIR is carried out every ten years (5 if letting).
