HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Sawtry and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Sawtry property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Sawtry property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a flat next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: inert waste material. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include heavy metals. Health issues like spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up structural issues connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Huntingdonshire Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Window frame

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Sawtry house or flat, what will 'E5 - Windows' cover?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the property. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns.

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. A rotted sash window, for example, would be reported here.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength qualities and it may be found in roof gutters. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace it and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Sawtry home survey. They will mention possible asbestos and should offer advice.
