Which Home Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Congleton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Congleton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Congleton property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there could be some brown asbestos roof tiles affecting the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including fireplace.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire doors. Most of it was sourced from the US. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a one fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb the asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently. Removing it asbestos is dear but absolutely must be completed by trained experts. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your Congleton surveyor should mention possible asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a coast house. What should be budgeted for upkeep?

Many buyers in Congleton would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a barn conversion. For traditionally-built Congleton property, age, however, can often be problematic, and Structures employing traditional methods can be a drain to repair. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Grade I listed property. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey. Built in the 16th century, Little Moreton Hall, Barn in Congleton is a fine example of a Medieval-period barn.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a building near to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial rubbish disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues like abdominal wall problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Congleton will examine any structural issues connected with the site. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological database in addition to Staffordshire Moorlands Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .
