HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Moulton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Moulton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Moulton property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect may wet conditions have on a home in Moulton? Can damaged downspouts decrease our property's value?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact high levels of rainfall can have on a property is overlooked by purchasers. For example, rotten roofing elements could mean that the downspouts are blocked, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. The good news is that problems with drains are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there could be quantities of white asbestos roof gutters in the home. What is asbestos, can it be easily dealt with and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos was not fully prohibited until the late nineties and property constructed earlier than that may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a noxious fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials for example garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in shed roofs. It is found all over the world including South Africa. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to damage it and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Professional removal of asbestos can be dear but must be conducted by experts. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Moulton survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a home in Moulton, does the house surveyor consider indications of flooding?

Overflowing rivers, rain and tides can cause flooding damage, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses and flats in flood-risk areas. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.
