HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Fulford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Fulford property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications on the Fulford property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Fulford property's general condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we should look into when planning to buy a flat in Fulford in conservation area, particularly in relation to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Fulford surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect may have on the property. The price of property is usually higher as a result of them being largely unspoilt

Surveyors are trained to inform you whether the building looks like it may be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out as part of the legal process. Unapproved adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your lawyer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Fulford, and think we saw signs of vermin in the bathroom. Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

Scare stories about house pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as carpet beetle larvae as minor annoyances. Regrettably, pests can be very expensive to resolve and affect the health of residents. Signs may not be obvious, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include traps and removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your property surveyor.

Asbestos roof tiles

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

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in eaves.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful however, on no account to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will note potential asbestos and will offer advice.
