HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Failsworth and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Failsworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Failsworth property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a concern of loose asbestos in the home. What are the issues with asbestos, what are the remedial options and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. paper lining.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in painted over ceilings. It is mainly found in the US. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or pleural

disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not deadly.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to move asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. Professional removal of it will be dear but must be conducted by experts.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Failsworth home survey. Your Failsworth surveyor should mention suspected asbestos during the survey and should recommend relevant tests.

Substandard guttering

On the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' include?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent each defect requires attention. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular property, omitting sections as necessary. In Failsworth, an example may be downspouts discharging onto the ground. The rainwater goods are inspected by eye. This section does not include possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. What can we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. An affected building may not always be easy to identify. As an example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal of infected furniture. If you believe ants, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
