HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Nantwich and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Nantwich property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Nantwich property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will heavy rainfall have on a property? Where there is a problem, what should we do?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather rainfall and the effect it can have on homes in Nantwich are ignored. Signs that gutters are damaged include water pooling below gutters. If you are concerned, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Whether buying in Nantwich or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix if dealt with quickly. If not cared for, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of white asbestos pipe insulation being found in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. roof gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in powdery sprayed on coatings.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break it and expert advice must be taken without delay. You should not endeavour to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Nantwich survey. However, surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it best to go for a full structural survey prior to purchasing a derelict, Victorian purpose built flat in Nantwich?

The Full Structural Survey is now called the Building Survey. If contemplating the buying of an unconventional Nantwich flat, for example a dilapidated flat, it is now the best RICS survey. The survey will outline full and frequently critical details on the flats standard of construction and repair in addition to any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts. There are a few provisos with the survey insofar as a RICS surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Nantwich flat such as removing the contents of cupboards. Furthermore flats often make a full survey more complicated, and your appointed surveyor will only scrutinise the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, although he/she provide an opinion other parts of the property like any alarm system.
