HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Whaley Bridge and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Whaley Bridge property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Whaley Bridge property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any benefits for conducting the full structural survey in Whaley Bridge instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a abandoned end of terrace house?

Albeit now often referred to as Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike, these surveys are now called Building Surveys. This is now the correct property survey if planning to buy a modified property e.g. a neglected house in Whaley Bridge. The report will outline crucial information about the property's construction and any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos paper lining affecting the property. What is asbestos and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceiling material.

All forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to displace the asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Whaley Bridge HomeBuyer report. Your Whaley Bridge surveyor should mention the risk of asbestos risks and will offer advice.

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency home in Whaley Bridge that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact a form of solid render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco is very attractive and is/was found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. it can be prone to defect and Whaley Bridge Building Surveys sometimes focus on issues such as when movement of the underlying wall can lead to cracks

Another example of problems associated with stucco may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-coating Stucco problems may be costly as renderers are becoming rarer.
