HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Nelson and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Nelson property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Nelson property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials for example soffit boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in duct connectors. Most asbestos was imported from Canada.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Professional removal of it can be costly but absolutely must be carried out by trained experts. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will mention possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

House Prices

I want to buy a flat in BB9. The asking price is £84, 600. What different issues will your Nelson chartered surveyor consider on a property valuation report ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect property values ranging from the tenure to defects in the lease. It may help to weigh up prices against the prices of flat registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties. The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £60, 000, which is £24, 600 less than the price you are intending to pay. The combined house/flat average was £77, 456. 12, Holme Bank Mews, Nelson, Pendle, Lancashire, BB9 8SX a leasehold apartment recently sold for £60, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as part of the service. Your qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

A RICS chartered surveyor will visit the property in addition to factoring in any other location variables that can affect the value of property.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could heavy rainfall have on our new Nelson house?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, wet weather and the effect it can have on properties are ignored by buyers. For instance, "gushing" gutters may indicate that the drainage systems are damaged. Blocked rainwater goods can result in damage to foundations.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are disregarded. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
