HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Bethnal Green and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Bethnal Green property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Bethnal Green property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example pipe insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in paper lining.

All forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. Your Bethnal Green surveyor should report on suspected asbestos and should offer advice.
