HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Halewood and which is cheaper?

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

If the Halewood property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Halewood property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos walls situated in the property. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a deleterious silicate material formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types were commonly found in the building materials for example rain water goods.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in gutters. It was primarily mined in Canada.

All forms are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a one fibre will not kill you.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace the asbestos and professional advice should be

sought ASAP. Removing it can be dear but absolutely must be carried out by experts. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Halewood home survey. Your Halewood surveyor should mention possible asbestos during the survey and will suggest experts are consulted.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it best to spend a bit more on full structural survey before purchasing a derelict period house in Halewood?

Structural surveys have a new title and are now called Building Surveys. If you are contemplating the buying of an unconventional property such as a poor condition house in Halewood, this is the correct selection of survey to complete. Subsequent to a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the house a written report (digital and written copy) will be sent to you setting out thorough and relevant information about the standard of construction and repair of the house.

There will be certain no go areas with any survey insofar as the surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Halewood house for example removing roof space contents.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Halewood, and think we saw signs of pests in the toilet. Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Property in Halewood are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This issue should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to insect infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.
