HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wiveliscombe property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations on the Wiveliscombe property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give comprehensive details of the Wiveliscombe property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Deteriorated timber

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Wiveliscombe, what are common defects Condition rating 3 impacting joinery and finishes?

Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert, where asbestos is suspected to have been used in the residence's construction. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the property. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded. For a Wiveliscombe house, one issue is loose or missing tiles. This section includes visual aspects of the roof, checked with the aid of binoculars where appropriate. Fascias, soffits and eaves will be investigated.

Asbestos roof tiles

There is suspected asbestos lagging in the building. What is asbestos, is there a danger, can it be easily dealt with and Should we pull out?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials such as insulating board.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good fire retarding properties, it may be found in coatings spayed on beams.

All forms including white are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to move asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Wiveliscombe HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Wiveliscombe house and am concerned about the deterioration of the clay soil foundations. Will a Home Buyers Survey look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties. Specific problems include soil swelling, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation.

Taking precautions, such as checking that the downpipe drains correctly, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
