HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Copmanthorpe and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Copmanthorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Copmanthorpe property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it recommended that we consider guttering? Can damaged guttering decrease our property's value?

Regular rainfall is common in Copmanthorpe and across the country, but this issue is ignored by home buyers. For instance, rotten roofing elements may indicate that the downspouts are worth a closer look. Whether buying in Copmanthorpe or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair, unless they are untreated or poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be signs of asbestos textured coatings situated in the building. What is asbestos, is it hazardous, can it be removed and What should we do?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. boilers. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in boiler cupboard. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken not to break it. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will mention possible asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

Building Surveys on houses

What is the justification for having a full structural survey when acquiring a converted mid terrace house in Copmanthorpe over a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit regularly called Full Structural Surveys this survey type is now defunct and they are renamed Building Surveys If intending to buy an unusual home such as a period house, the Building Survey is now the most appropriate survey to choose to have carried out. Once an exhaustive inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, a formal written report will be sent to the buyer detailing any critical advice concerning the condition of the house. There will be certain limitations with any survey as a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Copmanthorpe house, an example being lifting up floor coverings.
