HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Neston and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Neston property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension on the property, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Neston property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Neston House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Other external areas of the property

On a Neston HomeBuyer Report, what does a Condition rating 2 mean for factors covered in Section E?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Red, amber and green ratings give property buyers indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point. This may not be urgent, however. Miscellaneous external elements are including here that do not sit comfortably elsewhere in section E. Rot and insect damage to a porch or conservatory's structure, for example, would be reported here.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a Neston house built York stone. Are there specific defects to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

From Portland Roach Limestone to Wroxton Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Neston are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos paper lining affecting the property. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials including pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation. Most of it was sourced from South Africa.

All forms are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove it and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos will probably be dear but must be carried out by trained experts. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. However they will mention suspected asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.
