HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Llanidloes and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Llanidloes property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Llanidloes property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more details why not obtain a Llanidloes Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Other external areas of the property

On a Llanidloes HomeBuyer Report, what does a Condition rating 2 mean for factors covered in Section E?

Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. An example defect for this is steps that spring or sag when used. The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Your surveyor can provide more details if required.

Asbestos roof tiles

I have suspicions that there could be asbestos sprayed on coatings present in the home I am buying. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and will the HomeBuyer Report in Llanidloes go into it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous structured mineral. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including powdery sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in soffit boards.

All forms including white are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken never to displace the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. You should not try to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Llanidloes building survey. However they will note the risk of asbestos risks and will offer advice.
