HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Templecombe and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Templecombe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Templecombe property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco Victorian home in Templecombe.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just a kind of smooth solid render. Commonly it is layered over brick hardens to form an even finish. It is highly aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Regency buildings. Stucco is often problematic and Templecombe surveyors frequently reveal any number of problems e.g. when movement of the wall results in cracks.

Another example of problems could result from the supporting heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-applying problems can be difficult as craftsmen are getting harder to find.

House Prices

I intend to buy a house in Templecombe. What things does a surveyor allow for in the process of a RICS valuation ?

There are a great number of factors which could affect the price of property ranging from the amount of service charges payable to the quality of the bathroom and fittings. .

In order for you to get an accurate property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as an inclusive part. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

The local surveyor will attend the home in addition to considering the countless location related influences that have a bearing on property values.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a property near to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. non-hazardous waste material disposal. Nobody really wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include heavy metals. Potential health problems such as cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Templecombe RICS surveyors will flag up any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to South Somerset Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
