HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Corsham and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Corsham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Corsham property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain an instant Corsham Home Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious substance. Some types were commonly found in the building materials for example boilers. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in boiler cupboard. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove it. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will mention potential asbestos risks and should inform you of the options.
