HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Market Bosworth and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Market Bosworth property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Market Bosworth property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated regency house in Market Bosworth that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick that dries to an even finish. The finish is highly attractive and is common on some Georgian buildings. It is very like plaster and mortar in its nature. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Market Bosworth frequently reveal issues for instance trapped water culminating in problems with damp.

Another example of problems might include when the stucco is taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Remedying problems with stucco may be costly as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the thirties house I expect to purchase it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board - does a Homebuyer Report in Market Bosworth report on the electrics?

During a Building Survey in Market Bosworth the home surveyor will typically comment on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state. A Chartered surveyor is trained to focus on concerns such as examining any outside installations e.g. out houses with a power supply or any garden lighting. A check for the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will be part of the survey. .

Examining the evidence of the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

The IEE advise that a PIR be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a risk of blue asbestos fire doors present in house. What is asbestos, is it hazardous, can it be removed and What should we do?

Buildings constructed prior to the mid eighties will conceal some materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials e.g. pipe lagging.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe insulation. It is found all over the world including the US.

All forms including white are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Removing it will probably be costly but must be carried out by professionals. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Market Bosworth survey. Your Market Bosworth surveyor should mention potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.
