HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Litherland and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Litherland property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Litherland property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I need to check on if purchasing a period property in Litherland near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor need to possess relevant knowledge of local factors and the connection they have with the building. Values is generally significantly higher due to them retaining original features.

Surveyors are trained to advise whether the building is or might be classified as such and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by your conveyancer. Out of keeping developments that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported in the Litherland survey but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Litherland home, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

One example issue could be any broken glass windows. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there might be asbestos pipe lagging in existence at the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic substance of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example vinyl flooring.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in asbestos blocks. It is mainly found in the US. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a one fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful however, never to disturb it and professional advice must be taken urgently. Professional removal of it can be expensive must always be completed by trained experts.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will report on suspected asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
