HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in High Holborn and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the High Holborn property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications on the High Holborn property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the High Holborn property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I intend to lease I noticed that there is an old fuse board , will a surveyor report on electrical defects?

During a Building Survey in High Holborn the RICS surveyor should usually comment on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in a poor state.

This will include a general inspection of the superficial areas of the wiring and other areas like examining any external or remote installations, for example power in garages or any water features.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. Inspecting the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to opt for the full structural survey when looking into a defective thirties home near High Holborn instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Sometimes still referred to as the Full Structural Survey by many, it is now defunct and and has been replaced by RICS and the correct term is now the RICS Building Survey. If intending to buy an altered home e.g. an older house in High Holborn - it is the most suitable RICS survey to go for. Subsequent to an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is supplied to the buyer detailing any significant professional advice on the materials used for the construction of the house. There are one or two limitations with a property survey to be aware of insofar as RICS chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the High Holborn property e.g. moving heavy furniture.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. Why would there be asbestos, can it be remedied and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials including artex.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in the home appliances.

All forms are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break the asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
