HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Deal and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Deal property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Deal property's general condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the chartered surveyor consider any flooding damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of asbestos fire doors in the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and Should we still go ahead with the purchase?

Asbestos is a noxious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as eaves. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in ironing boards.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to break asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. Professional removal of it will likely be costly but must be carried out by professionals. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos risks and should advise accordingly.
