HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Fairbourne and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Fairbourne property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Fairbourne property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a converted stable in Fairbourne. Will the house's age be a problem?

For houses in Fairbourne built before the 20th Century, age can create issues for homeowners. Fairbourne property built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Fairbourne's conservation areas. If the house you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your property surveyor for more information.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example asbestos blocks. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent fire retarding qualities and it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls. Technically all forms including white are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay. You should not try to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Fairbourne home survey. However they will mention potential asbestos and should offer advice.

Conservation area

Are there any things we need to check out when purchasing an extended house in Fairbourne in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor need to have local knowledge of local area issues and the bearing may have with the home and its value. House prices are generally higher which is down to conservation areas retaining original features. However many areas have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - ugly satellite dishes

Surveyors are trained to advise you whether the building looks like it may be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic extensions to the property may be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your legal representative.
