HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Lee and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Lee property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Lee property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Lee, and think we saw signs of bugs in the kitchen - What can we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Regrettably, vermin can be very expensive to resolve and carry serious health risks. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as boards around radiators. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in artex.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to break asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. They will note suspected asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this residence is located by a brook. Is there a major flood risk? Would our property surveyor search for signs of flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause water damage caused by flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a Lee property in an at-risk area may be impacted. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The survey report will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The home surveyor may ask the property owner or occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

The River Severn and its tributaries, near Lee, was given an updated status of 'No warnings' at 07:40 on 3/01/13, by the Environment Agency.
