HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Tisbury and which is cheaper?

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

If the Tisbury property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Tisbury property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Tisbury Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of asbestos pipe insulation situated in the property. What is asbestos, can it be easily dealt with and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including ceiling boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to remove it and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during a Tisbury building survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos during the Tisbury survey and should advise accordingly.

Chimney stacks

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Tisbury what could a Condition rating 3 mean for 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

Section E elements are inspected by eye from ground level as necessary. A report on a lower ground flat, for instance, may not require this. Inadequate combustible clearances in the flue is an example.

Severe defects impacting the house or flat are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a property's value. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the house or flat. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a 16th Century cottage. What effect will the residence's structure have on upkeep?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Tisbury houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to maintain. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for property in a conservation area, Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may be required.
