HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Lyndhurst and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Lyndhurst property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Lyndhurst property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as ironing boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire blankets. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a single fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken not to displace the asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of it can be costly must always be carried out

by experts. Lyndhurst Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Lyndhurst survey. However, surveyors will note the risk of asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the thirties house we are hoping to lease We noticed that there were damaged electrical sockets, does a Homebuyer Report in Lyndhurst report on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Lyndhurst your RICS surveyor should usually mention the overall electrical system if it looks like they are in a dangerous state of repair. This should include an overview or examination of the open parts of the wiring as well as concerns such as reporting on the condition of fixed appliances, for example water heaters or reporting on the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection need be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).
