HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in North Cave and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the North Cave property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the North Cave property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in North Cave, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the loft be difficult to arrange?

North Cave homes that are otherwise ideal will suffer roofing woes, like poor insulation. Every element should be checked, e.g. fascias. Your house surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A local contractor can provide an estimate.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a danger of an asbestos fireplace at the house. What are the issues with asbestos, what are the remedial options and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including shed roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in soil vent pipes. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your North Cave surveyor should note possible asbestos during the North Cave survey and will suggest further investigation.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when buying a maisonette in the region a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks might include heavy metals. Health issues such as birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in North Cave will examine structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to East Riding of Yorkshire Local Authority and advise you .
