HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Disley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Disley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Disley property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External walls

On a Disley HomeBuyer Report, what effect will a Condition Rating 1 have on main walls?

Aspects of the property in good or excellent condition are marked as 'green' with a condition rating of 1. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked. Observations on the Damp Proof Course are also reported here. The bowing or leaning of external, non-structural walls would be reported here, for example.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a converted barn and the seller's agent has informed us that it has been built with Cotswold stone. What should we look in to, and what does the survey cover?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Defects such as delamination affect many stone-walled properties in Disley. Stone quarried in the area is common to local properties in Disley, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. Purchasers renovating properties in Disley should be aware that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey, as part of the Building Stone Assessment GeoReport. To source stone quarried in Disley, you can contact local suppliers.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there may be a risk of brown asbestos ceiling boards situated in the flat. What is asbestos and does the Disley home survey report on it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation for example. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken never to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay. On no account endeavour to remove it yourself.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. They will report on potential asbestos and should suggest further investigation.
