HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Carlisle and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Carlisle property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Carlisle property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A Carlisle builder commented that there is a danger of blue asbestos Artex present in house. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as textured coatings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in water tanks. Most of it was sourced from Canada. Technically all forms including white are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a solitary fibre will not kill you.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to move asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Removing it can be costly but must be conducted by professionals. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Carlisle survey. Your surveyor will note potential asbestos during the survey and should suggest further investigation.
