HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Ormskirk and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Ormskirk property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Ormskirk property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Ormskirk property built in the mid 90s, but it has clay foundations. Will the Ormskirk House Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Clay soil is related to a handful of potentially severe defects. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly, such as widening cracks. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a risk of asbestos flooring materials in existence at the apartment. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials such as powdery sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in soffit boards. It is mainly found in South Africa. Technically all forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a one fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice must be taken urgently. Removing it will be expensive but must be conducted by trained experts. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Ormskirk HomeBuyer report. However they will note potential asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
