HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Eden Park and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Eden Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Eden Park property's general condition along with an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us in the old property. Will access to the roof be difficult to arrange?

Eden Park houses in good condition can be blighted by roofing problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to rafters. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to look into if planning to buy a property in Eden Park near a conservation area ?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Eden Park are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local area factors and the relation they have with the home and its value. The price of property is usually significantly higher because of them being unspoilt. However many have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

RICS surveyors can be expected to note if the planned purchase could be within a conservation area and Section I of the Eden Park Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are conducted by your conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments to the building will also be advised, however these should be concern for your legal representative.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos insulating board affecting the house. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks, what are the remedial options and Should I be worried?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as toilet cistern.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in textured coatings. Technically all forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the survey and will inform you of the options.
