HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Wenvoe and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Wenvoe property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Wenvoe property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Flat and sloping roofs are comprehensively checked, provided that access is possible. Openings at seams or flashings is an example of this. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property purchasers a clear understanding of to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. A rating of 1 is the highest, meaning that this aspect of the property being surveyed does not need urgent attention, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration.

Asbestos roof tiles

A Wenvoe builder commented that there is a danger of blue asbestos Artex present in house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic ceilings. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, not to break it and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your Wenvoe surveyor should note possible asbestos risks and should advise accordingly.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the unmodernised property we are meaning to lease, the agent said that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does Wenvoe Homebuyer Report go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Wenvoe your surveyor will add detail on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsafe state. He or she should also provide detail on possible problems relating to things like inspecting the nature of any electrical fittings in bathrooms. A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician should be part of the survey in Wenvoe. Inspecting the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The IEE suggest an electrical check is carried out every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
