HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Burnley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Burnley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Burnley property's general condition along with an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there may be asbestos cement sheets in existence at the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Burnley building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. coatings spayed on beams. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength qualities and it may be found in cement sheet. Most of it was sourced from South Africa. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a single fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought immediately. Professional removal of asbestos may be costly but absolutely must be completed by trained experts. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your Burnley surveyor should report on the risk of asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 15th Century farmhouse in Burnley. What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Many buyers plan to buy a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. A property's age, however, can create issues for homeowners. Structures built with traditional methods can be challenging to upkeep. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Burnley listed buildings. If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with your building surveyor for more information.
