HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Little Haven and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Little Haven property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Little Haven property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that the had been a problem with wet rot. Will access to the roof of the house be an issue?

This often causes anxiety for buyers who know how costly roofing work can be. Houses across Little Haven may be exposed to roofing woes, like ponding. From the clay tiles to the tie beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. The surveyors in Little Haven could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The expense of loft insulation, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a danger of asbestos insulation situated in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials for example roof gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in powdery sprayed on coatings.

All forms are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, not to break the asbestos and professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see a property I want to acquire it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will a surveyor advise on the electrical system condition?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Little Haven a surveyor will usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. A Surveyor is required to report on concerns such as inspecting the state of repair of the fitted appliances such as water heaters. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician should usually be part of the survey.
