HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Poulton Le Fylde and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Poulton Le Fylde property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Poulton Le Fylde property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we should be conscious of when planning to buy a period property in Poulton Le Fylde near a conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local authority.

Property surveyors are expected advise you whether the property is or might be is so classified and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are carried out as part of the legal process.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am concerned that there is asbestos pipe lagging insulation being found in property. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

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 ironing boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire blankets.

All forms including white are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to displace it and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note the risk of asbestos during the survey and will recommend relevant tests.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the building we intend to lease, the agent said that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox - will a Poulton Le Fylde Homebuyer Report go into detail on electrical system condition?

When performing a Building Survey in Poulton Le Fylde the home surveyor should remark on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in an unsatisfactory state of repair. This will include a non invasive view of the accessible sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other potential areas for concern such as inspecting the state of repair of any fitted appliances like electric showers or checking the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should form part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a Periodic Inspection be completed every ten years (5 if renting out).
