HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Bolton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Bolton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check downspouts? Will the building survey report on this? Where there is necessary work, what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of houses in the area, I find it strange that the impact damp weather can have on a structure is often overlooked. If you have only seen the house you are buying in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. Blocked rainwater goods can result in damage to foundations.

Fortunately, issues with rainwater goods are usually easy to fix, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there are asbestos flooring materials being found in property. What is asbestos, can it be treated and will the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a pernicious substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example ceiling material.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in ceiling boards. It is found all over the world including the US. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a single fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken not to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Removing it asbestos can be expensive but must be completed by experts.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Bolton home survey. Your Bolton surveyor should report on possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Landfill site near home
