Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a home proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous refuse disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Concerns include hazardous chemicals. Health concerns for example congenital birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Parkwood Springs RICS surveyors will find any structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Sheffield Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Substandard guttering

In a Parkwood Springs HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual an red light rating defects affecting rainwater pipes and gutters?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how concerning each aspect of the report is. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. They can include defects which compromise the structural integrity of a house or flat.

An example of this is clogged downspouts. They are visually inspected. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes.

Stone block wall damage

Can Cotswold stone-built homes be hard to upkeep. Are there specific matters to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like weathered stone will vary with the particular type of stone. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Gavin Lawrie, 207 Main Street, Prestwick, Ayrshire, KA9 1LH for details. Call 01292 479226 for more information.
