HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Roade and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Roade property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a thorough analysis of the Roade property's condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Roade, and can a Roade building survey look for flooding damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Independent), and owning a house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a

home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there could be brown asbestos toilet cistern in existence at the property. What is asbestos, what are the risks and will the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. Some types are found in the building materials such as insulating board. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in coatings spayed on beams. Technically all forms including white are deadly and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful however, not to break the asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Roade HomeBuyer report. Your Roade surveyor should report on suspected asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 17th Century converted stable. Will repairs costs be higher?

Use of traditional methods can create issues for homeowners. Roade houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. This may make asking the seller for more detail about their current maintenance regime a good idea.
