HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Herefordshire and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Herefordshire property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Herefordshire property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Herefordshire Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Are there any things we should be aware of if buying a home in Herefordshire near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in the UK which are governed by local councils. Herefordshire surveyors must possess knowledge of relevant local considerations and any relation may have on the building and its value. The price of property will likely be inflated owing to them being in good order.

RICS surveyors are trained to advise whether the location looks to be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are raised as part of the legal process. Out of keeping adjustments to the property will also be commented on, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there may be asbestos roof gutters present in the home I am buying. What is asbestos?

Property constructed earlier than the eighties will most likely contain some asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a dangerous substance of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. ceiling material.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in ceiling boards. It is mainly found in Canada. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos is costly must always be conducted by experts. Herefordshire Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Herefordshire building survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the Herefordshire survey and will recommend professional testing.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) semi detached home in Herefordshire.

Stucco is just a smooth and flat render. Usually it is layered over brick that dries to a smooth stone like surface. Stucco is very appealing and was often found on Victorian and Georgian homes. It is very like plaster. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Herefordshire Building Surveys commonly discover any number of problems for example trapped water culminating in the surface breaking which need attention. Other potential problems may be when the stucco has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-covering problems can be expensive as the skills are getting more difficult to find.
