HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Normanton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Normanton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Normanton property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there might be asbestos pipe lagging in existence at the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous mineral. Some types may be in building materials including insulating board. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in coatings spayed on beams. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful not to move it and professional advice must be taken without delay. You should never try to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Normanton survey. They will mention possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The house we plan to purchase is built on clay soil. Will the Normanton HomeBuyer Report consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Subsidence is often the result of unseen, subterranean causes, including clay soil. Specific problems include considerable shifts in soil volume caused by variable moisture content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a house. If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Normanton house's foundations, forcing them inward. Steps like keeping standing water on the property in check can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're planning to purchase in Normanton. Is there a flood risk, and will the home buyers survey investigate possible flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and owning a Normanton home in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable. In addition, the home survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.An awareness of characteristics of the Normanton area likely to affect the Normanton property also enables the residential surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The residential surveyor may ask the seller if the Normanton property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
