HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Pinnerwood Park and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Pinnerwood Park property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Pinnerwood Park property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice why not get a Pinnerwood Park Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the old property. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What aspects of the loft will be looked into?

This is a common concern for house purchasers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. Many residential properties can be hiding serious issues with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the trusses to the ceiling joists. The house surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like thatching, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a builder from the area can provide one.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is an asbestos tank situated in the home. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and will the HomeBuyer Report in Pinnerwood Park go into it?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials including cement. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceilings.

All forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to remove it. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Pinnerwood Park Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note potential asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would be advised to verify when intending to buy a converted house in Pinnerwood Park near a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local authorities.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local area factors and any connection may have with the property. Values tends to be more than prices outside the area as a result of them being largely unspoilt However many are falling into shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors are trained to report whether the location might be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your conveyancer. Unauthorised extensions to the building will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.
