HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Wetherby and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wetherby property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the Wetherby property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Window frame

For the Wetherby HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects for 'E5 - Windows' ?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Ineffective window drip caps is one defect applicable to this section.

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for purchasers deciding whether or not to purchase a Wetherby house or flat. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green the severity of any defects or points of interest included in the report. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the Wetherby 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.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Wetherby home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a boundary wall) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Wetherby property will include a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To ascertain the property's value the surveyor will should use area knowledge and other factors about the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also reflect on construction type and make certain other assumptions such as the ground is not land filled.

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. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any serious legal problems e.g. there being no outstanding claims. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor during the legal process.

Further area conjectures, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like busy roads, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. Is this a major concern and are there any health risks?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation.

All forms are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move asbestos and professional advice must be taken ASAP. Never endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
