HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Bessacarr and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bessacarr property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the Bessacarr property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Bessacarr home built in the late 70s, but it has clay foundations. Will my Bessacarr HomeBuyer Report look into this?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including soil compaction or compression. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Bessacarr house's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Bessacarr, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I spend a bit more on full structural survey prior to acquiring a defective regency mansion flat in Bessacarr?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now named the Building Survey. Choose a Building Survey for the flat referred to. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post 1950s unmodified flat made out of typical construction materials.

There are certain caveats exist with a property survey because a RICS surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the flat nor can he/she survey where hatches are over 3m above ground. Also flat conversions involve shared parts of the building which cannot always be accessed. , and your appointed surveyor is only able to look over the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, the surveyor may provide an opinion other tenant shared parts like commonly accessible roof spaces.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be painted over, but loose asbestos situated in the apartment. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including pipe insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in paper lining.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay. Never endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. They will report on possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
