Which Home Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Groby and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Groby property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Groby property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. What is asbestos, what are the risks and will the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a noxious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example ironing boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire blankets.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP. On no account try to disturb it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk. Groby Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Gas flame

Does the surveyor check out the safety of the gas heaters?

Yes. A chartered surveyor will visually survey the accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the location of the meter as part of the Groby survey, as well as gas connected fixtures, for instance balanced flues. The external fittings or housings won't be detached. Of course, gas can be hazardous, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a house close to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including non-hazardous refuse disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries include methane gas generation .

Surveyors in Groby will note structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database and Hinckley and Bosworth Local Authority and advise you .
