Which Building Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Liverpool

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if buying a home built from conventional materials i.e. brick & tile, not dilapidated and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Liverpool

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Liverpool) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor but is more comprehensive. Opt for this for unconventional , for example timber frame properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Liverpool

    This is an independent valuation . It is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Liverpool and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Liverpool property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liverpool property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor examine on a smooth stucco semi detached home in Liverpool which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is in fact a smooth and flat render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that dries to a smooth stone like appearance. It is very beautiful and was often applied to Regency houses. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Liverpool can detail any number of problems e.g. trapped moisture culminating in problems with damp needing repair.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may involve attack from salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Remedying problems can be dear as renderers are getting more difficult to find.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there is a possibility of asbestos pipe lagging insulation situated in the building. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as patching compounds. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in vinyl flooring. The main origins of asbestos were the US.

All forms are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a single fibre is not deadly.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to break the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. Getting rid of it will probably be expensive but absolutely must be conducted by experts. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Liverpool survey. Your Liverpool surveyor should report on potential asbestos risks and should suggest experts are consulted.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would need to look out for when purchasing a period property in Liverpool in Castle Street conservation area ?

Castle Street is in a conservation area and has been classified as 'poor' by English Heritage, with low vulnerability and deteriorating significantly. For further information visit their website or contact the conservation area administrator - Steve Corbett on 0151 233 5623. There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Castle Street is looked after by Liverpool City Council at Municipal Buildings, Dale St, Liverpool, L2 2DH - Call 01512 333 000.

Home Buyers Surveys in Liverpool are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local factors and any relation they have with the home and its value. Property Prices are typically inflated which is down to them retaining their original character.

RICS surveyors can be expected to advise you whether the building might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your solicitor. Out of keeping adjustments to the building will also be advised, however these should be investigated by your legal adviser.

    By Stewart Heasman September 29th, 2012

    Wet rot is usually associated with neglect or poor detailing in buildings, occurring in timbers which are continually wet, or having persistent moisture content in excess of around 20%. This can be caused by leaking roofs, joinery exposed to the elements (as was the case in this property) or...
