Which Building Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Maryport and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Maryport property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Maryport property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice get a Maryport Home Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Maryport home with a loft conversion, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What will our building surveyor in Maryport investigate during the survey?

Homes in the area in otherwise fine condition can be hiding serious roofing woes, like torn or punctured damp-proofing. From eaves to ridge flashing, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on. The RICS surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a builder from the area can provide one. Call Northwest Roofing of 3 The Costins, Allonby, Maryport, CA15 6PW on 01900 881237 for a quote.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would be advised to look into if planning to buy a flat in Maryport near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local issues and any connection may have on the home. Prices is generally inflated because of them being in good order. However a large number have fallen into a state of neglect for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors can be expected to note if the property is or might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by your legal representation. Unconsented changes to the building may also be noted in the survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser. Beaty and Co are a local firm situated at 1 Victoria Place, Allerdale, Cumbria, CA7 9PJ will be prepared to help. Tel: 1697342121

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos pipe lagging insulation at the home. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. central heating flues. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in garage roofs. Most asbestos was imported from the US.

All forms are ultimately potentially deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken never to displace it and professional advice must be taken immediately. Getting rid of it will probably be costly but must be carried out by professionals. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
