Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in St Fagans and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the St Fagans property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension on the St Fagans property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the St Fagans property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be indications of an asbestos Fuse box concealed in the flat. What is asbestos, can it be treated and will the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in 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 are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a St Fagans survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and will advise accordingly.
