Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Earl Shilton and which one would be cheaper?

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be powdery asbestos wallpaper in the house. What is asbestos, can it be treated and will the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. wall panelling. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to move asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay. You should never try to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and should offer advice.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we would be advised to be conscious of when buying a building in Earl Shilton near a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Your surveyor must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection may have with the home. Property Prices is, more often than not, greater which is down to them retaining original features. However many conservation areas have fallen into a state e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected advise you if the property might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Earl Shilton Homebuyer Report will suggest further enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unsympathetic adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised, however these should be concern for your legal representative.
