HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Polesworth and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Polesworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Polesworth property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Polesworth property will include an impartial valuation and will also include a cost of reinstatement. To ascertain an accurate value estimate the surveyor will should use local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: style of architecture The surveyor will also consider materials used and will make certain key assumptions, for example it is connected to mains services. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local area assumptions like the property being insurable, are made in addition to Polesworth environmental issues like flightpaths, also being considered.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a Polesworth HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

In Polesworth, an example may be a chimney stack or parapet with a visible lean. As part of Section E2, these elements will be reviewed, provided that access is possible.

An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a building next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: non-hazardous waste material disposal. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health problems like birth defects have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Polesworth will examine structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as North Warwickshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
