HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Lichfield 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 Lichfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Lichfield property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more details you can get an instant Lichfield Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Lichfield, what input does a surveyor in Lichfield give for buildings constructed with stretcher bond walls? Does render make a difference?

Brick-built Lichfield properties do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also experience numerous defects, such as spalling. For example, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and may require immediate attention. A local builder should be able to assist. Call All Types Of Brickwork, 30 Beechwood Av, St. Albans, AL1 4YA on 01727 856327 for a quote for repair work.

Brick-build property may be found throughout England and Wales, leading to a number of popular courses and methods.

If the Lichfield surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying slightly more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on sixties cottage in Lichfield?

Structural Surveys do not technically exist anymore Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a post 1950s unmodified Lichfield house made out of standard construction materials. The RICS Building Survey is certainly the most appropriate survey for the house described. Following an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, the surveyor's formal report is forwarded to the buyer running through thorough and critical advice concerning the condition of the building. There are certain provisos with a Building Survey to consider insofar as a qualified surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the of the Lichfield building such as removing loft contents.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of white asbestos pipe insulation being found in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous substance of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as asbestos packing in stud walls. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in central heating flues.

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

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, on no account to displace it and professional advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. They will mention suspected asbestos and should inform you of the options.
