HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Pattingham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Pattingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Pattingham property's condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Pattingham Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will rainfall have on a property in Pattingham? Also, if there are issues, will they be disruptive to fix?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which heavy rain has on your home is ignored by buyers. If you have visited the new home on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage systems are blocked include spalling on walls around drainage, and may lead to staining of wallpaper and damp. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve, if caught early. Where this is disregarded, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a house in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: hazardous waste material disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Health concerns for example cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Pattingham RICS surveyors will notice structural defects linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases and South Staffordshire Local Authority and advise you .

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas supply?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at whether the meter is in an escape route where relevant, as well as gas associated fixtures for example - chimney breasts or flues. The gas fittings won't actually be removed. The gas system won't be tested at all. Gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to carry out appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties are severe .
