HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Kingsnorth and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Kingsnorth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Kingsnorth property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including acoustic ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in patching compounds for example. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken not to move the asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay. You should never attempt to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note the risk of asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.
