HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Northallerton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Northallerton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Northallerton property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Northallerton, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the attic. Will the Full Structural Survey investigate this?

Pests like ants may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Northallerton.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. An affected house may not always be easy to identify.

For example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. What is asbestos and will the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a deleterious material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example cooker insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in stove insulation.

All forms including Chrysotile are deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken never to remove it. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. Northallerton Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. They will note potential asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey, instead of a Homebuyer Report for thirties property ?

Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its renaming a while ago by RICS. One should choose a Building Survey for the house you are planning to buy. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a 60 year old or less unmodified Northallerton house of standard building materials. There are a number caveats exist with any survey as a qualified surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the structure of the building of assess heating installations.
