HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Rawcliffe and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Rawcliffe property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Rawcliffe property's condition as well as advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we should be wary of if intending to buy a property in Rawcliffe in a conservation area?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by local authorities. Rawcliffe surveyors are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any effect may have on the home. Property values will likely be significantly higher as a result of them retaining their original character. However many of them are falling into have fallen into poor condition e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Property surveyors are expected inform you if the house is possibly within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Rawcliffe Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your legal adviser. Unconsented modifications to the property may also be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.

Window frame

For the Rawcliffe HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects for 'E5 - Windows' ?

One example would be a loose fitting sash window. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

Severe defects impacting the Rawcliffe residence are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent each defect requires attention.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is concern white asbestos ceiling material in existence at the flat. Should we be concerned?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to move asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.
