HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Chase Side and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Chase Side property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Chase Side property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is asbestos in some walls at the home. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including toilet cistern. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in textured coatings. Technically all forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move the asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Chase Side home survey. However they will note potential asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're buying in Chase Side. Is there a flood risk, and will the house surveyor inquire into any flooding?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Chase Side house is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and property purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the agent, but this information may not be accurate.

According to the Environment Agency, no flood alerts were found for Chase Side.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building mentioned that the had been issues with mould. What aspects of the roof will be checked during the survey?

Residential property in Chase Side in good condition will suffer roof maintenance problems. From clay tiles to tie beams, every part of the roof will be considered, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
