HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Beaminster and which is cheaper?

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

If the Beaminster property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Beaminster property's general condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

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

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Beaminster. What will we need to take notice of when purchasing a house built in around 1720? Will maintenance costs be higher?

Use of traditional methods can create difficulties for an owner. Houses employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be surprisingly expensive to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a property we are hoping to lease, the agent said that there could be corrosion of the wiring; will a Beaminster survey advise the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Beaminster Building Survey the surveyor will report on the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in a dangerous condition. This should include a by sight inspection (without removing any fittings) of the unconcealed sections of the wiring and other issues like verifying any external installations e.g. the garage or any water features. A check for the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Beaminster. Reporting on any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by an electrician on the property should usually be part of the survey in Beaminster .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a possibility of asbestos boards around radiators affecting the property. What is asbestos, are there any health risks, can it be treated and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials e.g. pipe lagging insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to move asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Never attempt to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Beaminster building survey. However, surveyors will report on potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.
