HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Thurmaston and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Thurmaston property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Thurmaston property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is flaky white asbestos insulation in the property. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious silicate material. Some types are found in the building materials such as vinyl flooring.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in asbestos blocks. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to displace it. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Never attempt to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Thurmaston home survey. However they will mention possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Chimney stacks

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Thurmaston house, can you give some examples of Condition rating 2 defects for chimney stacks?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Amber, or condition rating 2, defects will need to be repaired or replaced at some point, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. Section E elements are visually reviewed from ground level where appropriate. An apartment may not need such an inspection. A chimney which is not continuous through the roof or loft space is one defect applicable to this section.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it worth paying a bit more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on a flat in Thurmaston?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed as the Building Survey. When intending to buy an unconventional Thurmaston property, for example a neglected flat, this is now the best home survey. This non prescribed format of report will typically give thorough and critical advice on the homes state of repair along with any needs for future maintenance, shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts of the flat. There will be certain no go areas with any survey insofar as RICS chartered surveyor wont be able to open up the fabric of the of the Thurmaston flat, an example being lifting up fitted carpets. Furthermore flats can complicate the survey, and your appointed surveyor is only authorised inspect the actual flat although he/she provide detail on communal parts like such as the drains.
