HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Frant and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Frant property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Frant property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For more details you can get an instant Frant Survey Quote on our site or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Conservation area

Are there any problems I should on guard for if intending to buy an extended house in Frant near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Frant are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of local factors and the bearing may have on the home and its value. The price of property is, more often than not, greater due to conservation areas being largely unspoilt

Surveyors will inform you if the home is/might be so designated and Section I of your Frant Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved developments that do not have Local Authority approval should be reported but these are really more a concern for your

legal representative. Donaldson West are based in Pharmacy Chambers, Wealden, East Sussex, TN5 6AP and may be prepared to give you some pointers. Tel: 01892 782178

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of blue asbestos textured coatings in the apartment. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a noxious silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including stove insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic tiles. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb it. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will note possible asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Frant. What aspects of the building's roof will be considered?

This often causes anxiety for house purchasers. Many homes can often hide roof maintenance problems. Any part of the roof or loft, such as ceiling joists, ought to be checked. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

Replacement of tiles and other roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist in Frant can provide one.
