HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Uckfield and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Uckfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Uckfield property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any things I would need to check on when planning to buy a converted house in Uckfield inside a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must possess sufficient knowledge of local issues and the effect may have with the building. Values is typically greater owing to them retaining their original character. However many have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - out of keeping extensions

Property surveyors can be expected to report whether the building is/might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Uckfield Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Unconsented changes to the building will also be reported in the Uckfield survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when buying a home close to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. domestic waste disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include heavy metals. Potential health problems such as cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Uckfield surveyors will notice any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases as well as Wealden Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Uckfield surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a boundary wall) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost estimate as part of the report. To work out the correct valuation your RICS valuer will take into account in depth understanding of the Uckfield market and other things about the property for instance: style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and draw upon key assumptions such as there being no major problems. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no major legal problems such as the tenure being as indicated (e.g freehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to any local environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.
