HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Little Hulton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Little Hulton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Little Hulton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Little Hulton properties at risk, and does a chartered surveyor search for signs of flooding, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways can all result in extensive flooding damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a Little Hulton property through several routes, including window frames. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the Little Hulton property is at risk.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a building proximate to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. commercial refuse disposal. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns such as birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Little Hulton RICS surveyors will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Salford Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be a risk of asbestos Artex concealed in the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as wall panelling.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in toilet cistern. Most asbestos was imported from the US.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

If found, care should be taken never to move it and expert advice should be sought ASAP. Getting rid of asbestos will likely be expensive but must be completed by professionals.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will inform you of the options.
