HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Bembridge and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Bembridge property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Bembridge property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Bembridge, and think we saw signs of insects in the basement - Is a Building Survey advisable?

Bembridge purchasers should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to disclose a vermin problem. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, for example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies to insect infestation can include traps.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am worried that there may be asbestos pipe lagging affecting the flat. What are the issues with asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including flooring materials.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in fireplace.

All forms (including white) are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Bembridge Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos risks and will inform you of the options.

Building Surveys on houses

As it is more expensive, what is the reason for doing a full structural survey if buying a dilapidated detached house in Bembridge over a HomeBuyer Report?

Although conventionally (incorrectly) referred to as Full Structural Surveys by house buyers they are now actually called Building Surveys Opt for a Building Survey for the property referred to. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid century or later unmodified Bembridge property of conventional construction materials and methods. Bear in mind that some limitations come with a property survey because a surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the building or inspect where doing so could cause damage to the house.
