HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Oswestry and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Oswestry property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Oswestry property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be a risk of asbestos pipe insulation in the building. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe insulation. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. Never try to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Oswestry survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the survey and should suggest further investigation.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we should be wary of if planning to buy a flat in Oswestry in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand official conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local issues and the effect they have on the building. Property Prices are generally higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of conservation areas being in good order.

Property surveyors are expected inform you whether the building is/might be within a conservation area and Section I of your Oswestry Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by your legal representation. Unsympathetic developments to the building will also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for the lawyer.
