HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Tiverton and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Tiverton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Tiverton property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

English Heritage

We are intending to buy a property near Bampton Castle , will this affect the property's value?

Bampton Castle is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local interest can increase the desirability of an area. Examples of other local sites of interest are Berry Castle, Canonsleigh Abbey and Castle Close.. The surveyor will include many regional criteria during the homebuyer report in Tiverton. Refer to the English Heritage website for further information on Bampton Castle.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a house near to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. domestic waste. No one would want to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include complex organic chemicals. Potential health concerns like downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Tiverton RICS surveyors will flag up structural issues connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will carry out conveyancing and environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Mid Devon Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned that there could be asbestos cement sheets at the building. Which types of asbestos are a concern, what are the risks and does the building survey in Tiverton report on it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic substance of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example pipe insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in paper lining.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken never to displace asbestos and professional advice must be taken immediately. On no account endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Tiverton building survey. Your Tiverton surveyor should report on potential asbestos during the Tiverton survey and will recommend relevant tests.
