HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Great Wyrley and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Great Wyrley property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, 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 intend to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Great Wyrley property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a 1979-built flat in Great Wyrley and spotted wall cracks in the sitting room. What subsidence-related matters will the Chartered Surveyor consider?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be repaired. Many homes are erected with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Non-structural cracks not caused by subsidence can be repaired with filler. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there may be a risk of brown asbestos ceiling boards situated in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials e.g. rain water goods.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in gutters. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move it and professional advice must be taken ASAP. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will note potential asbestos and will offer advice.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying slightly more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on sixties house ?

Full Structural Surveys no longer exist anymore Building Survey has now superseded it. You should choose a RICS Building Survey for the property mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid 20th century of later Great Wyrley property built out of normal building materials. Be aware that a number limitations are integral with the survey as a RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the building nor can he/she inspect under floor (unless accessible).
