HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in West Derby and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the West Derby property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more 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 major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the West Derby property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a West Derby House Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a flat next to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including commercial waste material disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health problems like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

West Derby surveyors will note any structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases and Liverpool Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the West Derby home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To ascertain the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will call upon area knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. state of repair Surveyors also reflect on construction type and make certain key assumptions e.g. the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area conjectures, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental concerns like industrial buildings, also being considered.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would need to on guard for if buying a house in West Derby near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any effect they have on the property. Prices tends to be higher due to them retaining original features. However a growing number are falling into poor condition for example - the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors can be expected to inform you if the house is possibly is designated and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unsympathetic modifications to the building may also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.
