HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Hornsea and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hornsea property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Hornsea property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the building we are hoping to purchase We noticed that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; does Hornsea Homebuyer Report give details on on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Hornsea a surveyor will typically comment on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. A Chartered surveyor is expected to concerns such as checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters or if there are residual circuit breakers.

Confirming the existence of any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed will be part of the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a concern of an asbestos fireplace in existence at the flat. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials including boilers.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in boiler cupboard.

All forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken never to disturb asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay. Never endeavour to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. They will mention potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.

House Prices

My partner and I are in the process of purchasing a detached house in Hornsea (HU18) for £140, 118. What things does a local surveyor allow for when valuing house prices in Hornsea ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on the price of property like the number of bedrooms or issues with drainage. It may help to set against prices recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £133, 318, which is £6, 800 less than the price you are intending to pay (£127, 149 was the blended house/flat average). 9, Ambaston Road, Hornsea, East Riding Of Yorkshire, East Riding Of Yorkshire, HU18 1HB a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £155, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get an accurate and professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as part of the service.
