HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Lynmouth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Lynmouth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension on the Lynmouth property, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Lynmouth property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there may be a danger of white asbestos ceilings in existence at the building. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. Some types may be in building materials e.g. ceiling material. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in ceiling boards for example.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to disturb it and professional advice should be sought urgently. You should never endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However they will report on possible asbestos risks and should recommend relevant tests.

Defective door frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Lynmouth house, can you give examples of Condition rating 3 defects affecting outside doors?

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

All doors leading outside are checked, but will not force open any without keys. Generally, the security offer by these doors will be reported on. Excess condensation in a double-glazed door is an example.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I need to verify if planning to buy a house in Lynmouth near a conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Lynmouth need to possess knowledge of local issues and any effect they have with the property and its value. House prices are usually greater owing to them resisting change.

RICS surveyors can be expected to inform you whether the building looks like it may be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are raised by your legal representation. Unapproved changes to the property will also be advised, however these should be concern for your legal representative.
