HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Winslow and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Winslow property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Winslow property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

On the HomeBuyer Report, can you give some examples of a green light rating defects for factors covered in Section E?

A condition rating of 1 states that no repair work is needed, but regular upkeep may still be required. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

For a Winslow residential property, one issue is external wooden steps which are in contact with the soil. Miscellaneous external elements are including here which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there may be a danger of white asbestos ceilings in existence at the building. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including patching compounds. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in vinyl flooring.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos during a Winslow building survey. They will note suspected asbestos during the Winslow survey and should inform you of the options.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance caused problems in a house we used to own. What does a surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Winslow property with no other major issues will suffer sagging beams, among a range of other roofing issues. Any part of the roof or loft, such as parapet walls, ought to be checked. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable builder.
