HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Fleetwood and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Fleetwood property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Fleetwood property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Fleetwood, and will the house surveyor look for possible water damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flooding begins. In addition, the house survey may outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home in Fleetwood enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the estate agent, but this information may not be accurate.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there may be a danger of white asbestos ceilings in existence at the building. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in insulation. The main origins of asbestos were the US.

All forms including white are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a single fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken on no account to break the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Removing it can be expensive must always be carried out by trained experts. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note potential asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Will access to the house's roof be problematic?

Questions like this are often asked of Fleetwood surveyors by Fleetwood home buyers who are aware that property can be hiding serious roofing woes, like wet rot. From ridge flashing to sheathing, every part of the roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing contractor in Fleetwood a quote for any suggested work.
