HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Thorne and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Thorne property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Thorne property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there is a concern of asbestos roof tiles affecting the property. What is asbestos, is it hazardous, can it be removed and What should we do?

Asbestos is a harmful substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as toilet cistern. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in textured coatings. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay. Never endeavour to disturb it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos during the survey. Your Thorne surveyor should report on suspected asbestos risks and will offer advice.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Thorne Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and what will it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Thorne property will contain a valuation and a rebuilding cost as standard. To fully consider the market value the surveyor will refer to local Thorne market factors and other things about the property e.g. square metres Your Thorne surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and will make certain key assumptions e.g. the ground is not land filled. Surveyors will disregard certain things like sales incentives. The valuation also assumes that there are no compromising legal problems such as Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Such concerns will be unravelled by your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, for example service connections, are made in addition to environmental concerns like busy roads, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the period property we are hoping to acquire, it appeared that there is old wiring; does Homebuyer Report in Thorne advise the general state of the electrical system?

During a Thorne Home Survey a surveyor will typically mention the electrical system if it is apparent that the electrics are in a poor state of repair. He or she is trained to things like verifying the state of repair of the fixed appliances e.g. water heaters or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will form part of the Homebuyer report in Thorne.

The IEE strongly advise a Periodic Inspection is carried out every ten years (5 if letting out). For nearby advice on domestic electrical systems try NTS Electrical , 56 Ellison St, Thorne, Doncaster, DN8 5LH .
