HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Navenby and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Navenby property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension on the Navenby property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Navenby property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get an instant Navenby Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Navenby. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Which issues relating to the loft will be looked into?

Homes in the area that are otherwise ideal may be exposed to roofing woes. From slates to roof battens, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by amateur repairs.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A roofing contractor with accreditation can provide a quote.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Navenby include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Navenby property will include a property valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as a standard part of the survey. To estimate the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will combine awareness of the Navenby property market and other things relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction type and will use other assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been employed. Surveyors will ignore certain things like furnishings.

Additional local area assumptions like connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental problems like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a risk of asbestos flooring materials in existence at the apartment. What is asbestos and does the Navenby HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral of several naturally occurring materials. Some types are found in the building materials including acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic ceilings.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to move asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will report on suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.
