HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Codsall and which one is cheaper?

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

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Codsall property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we should verify when intending to buy a building in Codsall in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of local area factors and the effect may have with the building and its value. Property Prices are usually significantly higher because of the areas being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the property is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise

further investigations are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised adjustments to the property should be noted, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report.

For a Codsall house, one example could be external wooden steps which are in contact with the soil. Miscellaneous external elements are including here which do not fit into the other categories. Contact your surveyor if you require more information.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of blue asbestos textured coatings in the apartment. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in sealant. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately. You should not try to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos during a Codsall building survey. However they will note suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
