HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Markfield and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Markfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Markfield property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there may be a risk of brown asbestos ceiling boards situated in the flat. What is asbestos, what are the risks and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials such as garage roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in shed roofs.

All forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Markfield survey. Your Markfield surveyor should mention the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Markfield, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the bedrooms. What advice should we get?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Markfield building may not be raised during the conveyancing. Signs may not be obvious. For example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and what will it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a property valuation and a rebuilding cost. To fully consider the value of the property your independent surveyor will use experience of property in Markfield and other considerations relating to the property for instance: general condition.

Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and use other assumptions, for example no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings e.g. carpets. RICS valuations assume that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal issues for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further area conjectures like issues with access, are made in addition to Markfield environmental issues like nearby pubs, also being considered.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
