HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in St Brides Major and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the St Brides Major property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations on the St Brides Major property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you comprehensive details of the St Brides Major property's state of repair as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I'm unsure about the argument to go for the full structural survey when acquiring a derelict semi detached townhouse in St Brides Major instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes referred to as a Structural Survey, this survey is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been reclassified by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report is appropriate if investigating a post fifties unmodified St Brides Major house made out of conventional construction materials i.e. brick walls and tiled roof. A Building Survey would be the most advisable one to choose for the house described. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of any accessible parts of the house, the surveyor's formal report is sent to the prospective purchaser summarising any critical professional advice in relation to the construction

of the house. Bear in mind that certain caveats exist with any survey as a surveyor will not be able to open up the fabric of the property nor can they assess serviceability of a boiler.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials such as boilers. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in boiler cupboard. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a St Brides Major HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in St Brides Major. What will our St Brides Major surveyor check when the house is surveyed?

Residential property in St Brides Major in good condition can often hide issues with the roof like. From slates to collar beams, every element of the roof will be taken into account. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of St Brides Major, but it is a health and safety necessity. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
