HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Oughtibridge and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Oughtibridge property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make substantial modifications, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Oughtibridge property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about bugs affecting some homes. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Homes are generally free of vermin, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and put your health in danger. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for pests may include removal of infected furniture. Your Oughtibridge surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is concern white asbestos ceiling material in existence at the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern, is there a danger and will the home survey in Oughtibridge report on it?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as toilet cistern.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in textured coatings.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to move the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your Oughtibridge surveyor should note the risk of asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the building I am planning to move into it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a Oughtibridge survey go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Oughtibridge the surveyor will usually comment on the electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a less than satisfactory condition. A Chartered surveyor is required to give detail on possible problems relating to things like the location of the meter and fuse board or verifying the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Reporting on any documentation from any recent PIR conducted by an electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Oughtibridge. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) strongly advise that an electrical system check be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).
