HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Hyde Park and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Hyde Park property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension on the Hyde Park property, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give a thorough analysis of the Hyde Park property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this property is located in a low lying part of Hyde Park. Is there a major flood risk? Would our building survey investigate possible flood damage, or if other houses on the street have been affected?

Flooding in Hyde Park can cause severe damage to both contents and property. Both home purchasers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a Hyde Park home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. Also included

on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood warnings were found for Hyde Park.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a concern of asbestos boards around windows being found in the home. What are the risks of asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials such as stove insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic tiles.

All forms including white are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to remove it. Professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. Your Hyde Park surveyor should note possible asbestos and should offer advice.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I do a full structural survey if purchasing a doer-upper regency cottage in Hyde Park as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly still called the Structural Survey by house buyers, this survey is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been superseded by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. This is the right selection of survey when buying an altered house e.g. an older house. It will outline thorough and far-reaching insight about the buildings condition in conjunction with any technical details after a thorough inspection. Read more about survey specifics - visit here.
