HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Lytham St Annes and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Lytham St Annes property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Lytham St Annes property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Lytham St Annes? If there is necessary work, will they be a hassle to fix?

Both in Lytham St Annes, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact wet conditions can have on a residence is not given more thought. If you have only been to the property you intend to purchase in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find.

Signs that drainage systems are worth a closer look include rotten roofing elements. Fortunately, problems with drains are generally easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. Will the Full Structural Survey investigate this?

Lytham St Annes home buyers should know that is not a requirement that a seller to disclose a vermin problem. This issue should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your Lytham St Annes surveyor.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am worried that there may be asbestos pipe lagging affecting the flat. What is asbestos and does the Lytham St Annes HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials such as fire blankets. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in walls.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos risks and will recommend relevant tests.
