HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Sudbury Court property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Sudbury Court property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice get a Sudbury Court Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the house we are hoping to acquire, it looked like there was evidence of an overload of the fuses; will the Sudbury Court surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

During a Homebuyer Report in Sudbury Court a surveyor should add detail on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a less than satisfactory state of repair. This will include a visual check of the superficial sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as other things, for example verifying the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Sudbury Court. What suggestions can a Sudbury Court surveyor make? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-constructed property in Sudbury Court do benefit from many advantages in comparison to other forms of building, but they can also experience several common problems. The RICS surveyor will mention these, with repair advice also supplied. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos pipe lagging insulation at the home. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including boards around windows.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in boards around radiators.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to remove it. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will report on possible asbestos and will advise accordingly.
