HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Sneinton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Sneinton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Sneinton property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we should consider when planning to buy a building in Sneinton inside a conservation area?

There are many thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local council. Your surveyor must possess local knowledge of local factors and the effect may have on the property. The price of property tends to be higher which is down to them resisting change. However many are falling into a state of neglect for example - the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors are expected tell you if the house is or might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented changes to the property will also be noted but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a risk of asbestos sealant present in the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including asbestos packing in stud walls. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in central heating flues.

All forms (including white) are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken never to break asbestos and professional advice must be taken ASAP. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. Your Sneinton surveyor should mention potential asbestos during the survey and should recommend relevant tests.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Sneinton, and will the HomeBuyer Report search for flooding damage?

Overflowing rivers, rain and tides can all result in extensive flooding damage; sensible owners and purchasers in Sneinton are right to consider precautions. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Sneinton house, such as via window frames. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The RICS surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the Sneinton house has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.
