HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Greasby and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Greasby property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension on the property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Greasby property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Greasby Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Greasby. What will we need to take notice of when purchasing older property? Will the residence's age be an issue?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a barn conversion. For houses in Greasby built before the 20th Century, age, however, can be problematic. Buildings constructed with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may also need to be sourced.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the thirties house we intend to buy, the agent said that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a the Greasby surveyor report on electrical defects?

When preparing a Greasby Home Buyers Survey the home surveyor should usually report on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that the electrics are in an unsafe state.

This will include a general inspection of any uncovered parts of the wiring on top of areas like checking the condition of any fitted electrical appliances, e.g. storage heaters or checking that the condition of any visible wiring. Reporting on any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos cement being found in the building. Is this a major concern and are there any health risks?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials such as painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in lagging. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful never to move the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay. Never endeavour to handle it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will mention the risk of asbestos and will inform you of the options.
