HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Olney property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give a thorough analysis of the Olney property's general condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

For the Olney HomeBuyer Report, what does a an amber light rating mean for joinery and finishes?

Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2. This may not be urgent, however. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give buyers in Olney a clear understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Fascias, soffits and eaves will be covered. Damage to slate or clay tiles is one example.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of asbestos pipe insulation situated in the property. What is asbestos and does the Olney home survey report on it?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. central heating flues. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in garage roofs. Technically all forms (including white) are deadly and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. Never endeavour to disturb it yourself. Olney Surveyors will not test for asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the unmodernised property I am interested to move into it appeared that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does Olney Homebuyer Report write anything on electrical system condition?

When conducting a Building Survey in Olney a surveyor should usually add detail on the overall electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsafe state.

This will include a non invasive view of the accessible areas of the wiring and other things, for example inspecting any outside installations, for example water features. Inspecting any evidence of any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey in Olney .
