HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Kempsey property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Kempsey property's condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is concern white asbestos ceiling material in existence at the flat. What is asbestos and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken however, on no account to move it. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Kempsey Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. They will report on possible asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the reasons to order a full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a defective cottage?

Albeit recurrently called Full Structural Surveys by house buyers - they are now named Building Surveys Choose a Building Survey in the case of the house described. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a 60 year old or less Kempsey property assembled from conventional construction materials. You should be aware of certain restrictions exist with any survey insofar as a chartered surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the structure of the property for example, or inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.

Conservatory

On the HomeBuyer Report what effect will a an amber light rating have on 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

One example would be ledger board problems. This section covers conservatories and porches. The type and condition of these parts should also be reported on.

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.
