HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Horbury and which is cheaper?

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

If the Horbury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Horbury property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the unmodernised property I want to buy it appeared that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Homebuyer Report in Horbury report on electrical system condition?

During a Building Survey in Horbury a RICS surveyor should make a note on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a hazardous condition. A Home surveyor is trained to issues like confirming the type of electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician will form part of the survey.

The IEE advocate a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) is carried out every ten years (5 if letting).

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any risks and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. asbestos blocks. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your Horbury surveyor should note suspected asbestos during the Horbury survey and will inform you of the options.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property in Horbury built Wooton stone. Are there any factors that need to be investigated?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include salt contamination of. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.
