HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in West Wittering and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the West Wittering property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give comprehensive details of the West Wittering property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls I should be conscious of when buying a flat in West Wittering inside a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local councils.

A Building Surveyors must possess knowledge of local considerations and the bearing may have with the building and its value. The price of property is typically significantly higher due to conservation areas retaining original features. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in a state for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are trained to advise you whether the building looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a maisonette close to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: inert rubbish. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include hazardous chemicals. Potential health concerns like abdominal wall problems have been associated with landfill sites .

West Wittering surveyors will find structural problems connected with the site. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological database as well as Havant Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the argument in spending a bit more on the full structural survey when looking into a un-loved terraced cottage in West Wittering rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently (incorrectly) referred to as the Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, this survey is no longer available as it has been re-titled by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. The Building Survey is now the best property survey if buying an unconventional house, for example an unloved West Wittering house. It will typically give important details on the property's construction in conjunction with any defects a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.
