HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Morecambe and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Morecambe property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Morecambe property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of white asbestos pipe insulation being found in the flat. What is asbestos and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. It was primarily mined in the US.

All forms including white are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently. Getting rid of asbestos may be dear and must always be carried out by trained experts. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your Morecambe surveyor should mention possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.
