HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Perry Barr property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Perry Barr property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to opt for the full structural survey if purchasing a derelict thirties bungalow in Perry Barr rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Often (incorrectly) called the Full Structural Survey, it is no longer offered and has been renamed by RICS and the right name is actually now the Building Survey. When buying an unusual Perry Barr home such as a dilapidated house - this is now the most suitable survey. A RICS Building Survey spells out in depth and important insight about the homes construction and uses and any technical details

a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. Permanent outside buildings will also be inspected.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we consider drainage?

I find it odd that the impact wet conditions can have on a structure is rarely paid due attention. Signs that drainage systems are under performing include spalling on walls around drainage. This could then result in damp and mould.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive.However, the damage caused, where left untreated, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be indications of an asbestos Fuse box concealed in the flat. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a pernicious silicate material. Some types are found in the building materials for example pipe lagging insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break it. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.
