HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Burscough and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Burscough property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Burscough property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is an asbestos tank situated in the home. What is asbestos and does the Burscough HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials including insulating board.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in coatings spayed on beams. It is found all over the world including South Africa. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a one fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken not to displace asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. Professional removal of it can be costly but absolutely must be carried out by experts. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. Your Burscough surveyor should report on possible asbestos risks and will advise accordingly.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof caused problems at our old property. What aspects of the roofing will be reported on when the survey is performed?

This often causes anxiety for house purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many properties could feature difficulties with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the dormers to the ridge flashing. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
