HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Childwall and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Childwall property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Childwall property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is flaky white asbestos insulation in the property. What is asbestos and are there any risks?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including walls. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in wall panelling. It is found all over the world including the US. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a one fibre is not fatal.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to move asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. Getting rid of it can be costly but absolutely must be conducted by professionals. Childwall Surveyors

do not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Childwall building survey. However, surveyors will note the risk of asbestos and will advise accordingly.
