HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Atherstone and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Atherstone property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Atherstone property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the period property we are meaning to buy we noticed that there were damaged electrical sockets - will the surveyor report on electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Homebuyer Report in Atherstone the home surveyor will usually mention the overall electrical system if it looks like they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a non invasive view of the unconcealed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as concerns such as verifying the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the condition of a sample of switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician will be part of the survey in Atherstone.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) strongly advise that an electrical system check need be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. What is asbestos, can it be treated and will the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example water tanks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the Atherstone survey and should offer advice.

Conservation area

Are there any things we would be advised to on guard for when purchasing a period property in Atherstone in the vicinity of a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout the country that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Atherstone surveyors must have local knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect may have with the building and its value. The value of homes will probably be higher owing to the areas resisting change. However many conservation areas have fallen into a state for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are expected tell you if the property is/might be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Atherstone Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unconsented extensions to the property may be reported but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.
