HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Lifton and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Lifton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Lifton property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of when buying a house close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous rubbish. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include heavy metals .

Surveyors will flag up structural problems connected with the site. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets as well as West Devon Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Lifton, and does our property surveyor mention it? Could it affect the property value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact damp weather can have on homes in Lifton is rarely considered properly by home buyers. One indication that drainage are at risk is water pooling below gutters. Blocked rainwater goods can result in cracked foundations and subsidence.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair, if identified early.However, the damage caused, where left untreated, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Asbestos roof tiles

A Lifton builder commented that there is a danger of blue asbestos Artex present in house. What is asbestos and does the Lifton HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials such as ceiling boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in boilers. Technically all forms including white are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken never to displace the asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay. You should not try to remove it yourself. Lifton Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Lifton survey. Your Lifton surveyor should note suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
