HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Clent and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

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

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Clent property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought immediately.

Clent Surveyors will not test for asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to opt for a full structural survey in Clent as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report if buying a converted cottage?

Although regularly described as Structural Surveys by some - they have actually been superseded by Building Surveys If you are buying an unusual Clent house, for example an extended house, it is the correct RICS survey. It can give thorough and often serious details about the property's construction and uses and any technical details, shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it that we consider rainwater goods? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Regular rainfall is common in Clent and across the country, but the impact wet weather can have on homes is rarely considered properly. One indication that drainage are blocked is rusted iron elements. This can lead to collapsed drains or overflowing septic tank.

Luckily, drainage problems are generally easy to repair fairly cheaply. If left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
