HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in North Plymouth and which is the cheapest?

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

If the North Plymouth property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the North Plymouth property's state of repair in addition to information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in North Plymouth, and can a North Plymouth property surveyor look for flooding?

It is estimated that over two million residences are exposed to floods, and the value of a residential property in an at-risk area may be impacted. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a house, such as via badly fitted air bricks.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect house enables the home surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the property owner or occupier, but this information may not be accurate.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is asbestos in some walls at the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example cement sheet. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break asbestos and professional advice must be taken immediately. On no account try to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note the risk of asbestos during the North Plymouth survey and will advise accordingly.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I upgrade to full structural survey prior to buying a neglected thirties garden apartment in North Plymouth?

The Building Survey has taken over the Structural Survey following its reclassification some time ago by RICS. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a 60 year old or less unmodified home made out of conventional construction materials i.e. brick and tile. One should carry out the Building Survey in relation to the apartment you are planning to buy. There are a number limitations exist with the survey because a local North Plymouth surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the building or survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.
