HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Arnold and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Arnold property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Arnold property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be painted over, but loose asbestos situated in the apartment. What is asbestos and is it hazardous?

Asbestos was not prohibited until nearly 2000 therefore houses built before 1999 may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous structured mineral of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as patching compounds.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in vinyl flooring. It is found all over the world including South Africa.

All forms are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a single fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful however, on no account to displace asbestos and professional advice must be taken ASAP. Getting rid of asbestos will probably be dear but must be carried out by professionals. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Arnold survey. Your Arnold surveyor should mention possible asbestos during the Arnold survey and should offer advice.

English Heritage

We are purchasing a home close to Cockpit Hill , will this affect the property's value?

Cockpit Hill is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can add to the desirability of an area. Examples of other nearby monuments of importance include Ramsdale Park.. Your RICS surveyor will consider all regional factors when carrying out the homebuyer report in Arnold. Visit the English Heritage site for further information on Cockpit Hill.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would need to consider if buying a property in Arnold in a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Arnold must possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and any bearing may have with the property. Values will likely be inflated which is down to the areas resisting change. However a growing number are falling into poor condition e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors can be expected to tell you if the house is/might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Arnold Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by your legal representation. Out of keeping modifications to the property should be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.
