HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Tutbury and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Tutbury property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Tutbury property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Tutbury Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a cottage in Tutbury. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

For traditionally-built Tutbury property, age can be problematic. Tutbury property built with traditional methods can be expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can result in higher ongoing expenses. If you plan to make alterations to a period building, discuss options with your surveyor for more information.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of if buying a building next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. non-hazardous rubbish. Nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include methane gas generation. Potential health issues like spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up any structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to South Derbyshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damaged Render

What will a Tutbury Surveyor take into account on a spar dash rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Tutbury.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really a type of render. Normally it is layered over brick that dries to an even finish. The finish is very aesthetic and is/was often found on Victorian and Regency houses for example. Stucco is often prone to defect and Tutbury Homebuyer Reports frequently focus on defects for example, horizontal cracking that follows the lines of mortar in the brickwork

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when dampness gets in below DPCs that results in large areas of detachment. Fixing problems with stucco may be costly as craftsmen are getting more difficult to find.
