HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Silsworth and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Silsworth property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Silsworth property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

There is suspected asbestos lagging in the building. What is asbestos and how is it remedied?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials for example ceiling boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers for example. Most of it was sourced from South Africa. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a solitary fibre will not kill you.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to remove asbestos and professional advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of it will be expensive but must be conducted by experts.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Silsworth home survey. However, surveyors will note potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Silsworth. Can a home surveyor search for possible flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Silsworth residential property is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and owning a residential property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that action is taken, before flooding occurs, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. appropriate drainage. The house surveyor may ask the seller about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report in Silsworth will include a property valuation and a Reinstatement Cost. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will combine local Silsworth market factors and other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and use other assumptions like no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Silsworth area conjectures, like the property being insurable, are made in addition to any Silsworth environmental issues like local industry, also being considered.
