HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Middleton and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Middleton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Middleton property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Middleton building with a loft conversion. Will access to the loft be problematic?

Middleton houses in otherwise fine condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from roof battens to eaves. Factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Middleton, but it is a health and safety necessity. A builder from the area with good feedback can provide a quote. Contact

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a flat next to Chadderton Landfill Site near Middleton and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. inert waste material disposal. A huge number of sites affect 100, 000's people in the UK including Middleton. Risks include structurally instability. Health problems for example spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will notice structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Corby Local Authority and advise you .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be a risk of asbestos pipe insulation in the building. What are the issues with asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. Some types may be in building materials e.g. ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceiling material. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. On no account try to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during a Middleton building survey. Surveyors will report on possible asbestos and should advise accordingly.
