HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Stilton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Stilton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Stilton property's condition as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a home near to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial refuse disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include tars and other hazardous materials. Potential health problems like gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Stilton will notice any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the British Geological database in addition to Peterborough Local Authority and advise you .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would need to look into if intending to buy a home in Stilton in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Surveyors in Stilton are required by RICS to have knowledge of relevant local issues and the connection they have on the home. The value of homes will probably be significantly higher as a result of them being in their original state. However many conservation areas have fallen into poor condition for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors will report whether the property is or might be so designated and Section I of your Stilton Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Out of keeping extensions that do not have Local Authority approval should be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Stilton? And could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However heavy rain and the effect it can have on a structure are often overlooked. If you have only visited the home on a sunny day, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include damp stains around drainage.

Luckily, problems with drains are usually easy to resolve.However, the damage caused, where not cleared out regularly, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
