HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Fordingbridge and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Fordingbridge property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Fordingbridge property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get an instant Fordingbridge House Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. What is asbestos, is there a danger and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous structured mineral. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as powdery sprayed on coatings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in soffit boards. Technically all forms are ultimately potentially deadly and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a solitary fibre is not fatal.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to disturb the asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos is costly but absolutely must be completed by trained experts.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the unmodernised property we expect to buy it looked like there is an old fuse board - does a Homebuyer Report in Fordingbridge advise the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Homebuyer Report in Fordingbridge a surveyor should usually make a note on the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in a poor state.

This should include a non invasive check of exposed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. in addition to possible problems relating to things like checking the condition of any visible wiring.

Verifying the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey. Inspecting the documents from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey in Fordingbridge .

The IEE strongly advise a Periodic Inspection be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting). For help from a certified electrician speak to Advance Electrical Installations , 23 Wellands Rd, Lyndhurst, SO43 7AB .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that the had been a problem with damp. What advice would the RICS surveyor give in their report?

Local property in otherwise fine condition can still be subject to roofing problems. Any part of the roof or loft, such as collar ties, ought to be checked. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Fordingbridge builder a quote for any suggested work.
