HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Badsey and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Badsey property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Badsey property's general condition along with information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in lagging. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to break asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Badsey home survey. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Badsey home, can you give some examples of an amber light rating defects impacting roof coverings?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give purchasers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. As part of Section E, E2 reports on flat and sloped roof issues. These are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. Debris blocking drainage on an asphalt roof, for example, would be reported here.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would be advised to on guard for when buying a house in Badsey near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Surveyors in Badsey need to have sufficient knowledge of local issues and any relation may have on the property. Prices is usually enhanced owing to them retaining original features.

Surveyors are trained to inform you whether the building looks to be is designated and Section I of a Badsey Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are raised as part of the legal process. Unsympathetic extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be noted but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.
