HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hinckley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Hinckley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Hinckley property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos lagging situated in the maisonette. Why would there be asbestos, are there any health risks and will the building survey in Hinckley report on it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves. Technically all forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to disturb asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Never endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Hinckley Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey.

However they will mention suspected asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the building I am hoping to move into, it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Hinckley Homebuyer Report give details on on the general state of the electrical system?

When performing a Hinckley Building Survey a surveyor will usually remark on the overall electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a poor state. This should include a by sight check of open or exposed parts of the wiring or fusebox and other things, for example whether there are residual circuit breakers. Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection need be completed every ten years (5 if renting out).

Timber damage by insect larvae

My housemate spotted signs of pests in the kitchen - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Hinckley building may not be raised during the conveyancing.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to vermin can include removal or excision of affected timber. If you believe thrips, or any pest, may be present, request that your Hinckley surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
