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

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 .

House Prices

I want to buy a flat in L3 for around £134, 582. What will a Liverpool qualified surveyor consider when conducting a Home Survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could positively or negatively affect house prices from the amount of service charges payable to whether the garden is overlooked. It can help to benchmark prices the prices of flat achieved in the area for similar flats. The mean flat price registered between July and October in 2012 was £119, 382, which is £15, 200 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £117, 079. 15, Apartment 213, Hatton Garden, Liverpool, Liverpool, Merseyside, L3 2HA was purchased for £114, 500 .

An impartial way to get a professional property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report in Liverpool which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

The qualified RICS surveyor will always attend the property in addition to allowing for the myriad of location variables that might affect property prices.

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.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the house in Liverpool we plan to buy. What can we do?

Liverpool houses are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

    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...
