HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Millom and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Millom property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Millom property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Millom House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a flat near to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: domestic waste material. No one would want to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include heavy metals .

Homebuyer reports in Millom will note structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database in addition to Copeland Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the unmodernised property I am intending to lease it looked like there was evidence of an overload of the fuses - does a surveyor advise the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Home Survey in Millom a RICS surveyor should usually comment on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe condition. A professional surveyor will also possible problems relating to things like inspecting the state of repair of any fitted appliances like electric showers or the location of the meter. Inspecting the documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician on the property should usually be part of the survey.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a house in Millom. How do we investigate further?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for insect infestation may include chemical treatment. If you believe mites, or any pest, may be present, request that your chartered surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
