HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Cheadle Hulme and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Cheadle Hulme property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Cheadle Hulme property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual Condition rating 3 defects affecting main walls?

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm to what extent each defect requires attention. Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular Cheadle Hulme home, omitting sections as necessary. One example would be cracks in brick walls. All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there may be a danger of white asbestos ceilings in existence at the building. What is asbestos and are there any risks?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including boiler cupboard. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in boards around windows. Technically all forms are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace it and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and should advise accordingly.
