HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Huyton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Huyton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension on the property, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Huyton property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Will a converted barn with stone walls create issues? Which problems should we consider?

Purchasers in Huyton should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Problems which impact stone-built properties in Huyton can vary greatly, with issues like algae being quote common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, contact a local stonemason or specialist. For example, Stv Gas Services of 15 Boundary Rd, Huyton, Liverpool, L36 0SN.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when buying a home close to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including non-hazardous waste disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Huyton RICS surveyors will consider structural issues resulting from the site. Your lawyer will conduct conveyancing searches of the Landmark database as well as Knowsley Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented to say there may be an asbestos boiler affecting the flat. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials such as central heating flues. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in garage roofs. Most of it was sourced from Canada. Technically all forms (including white) are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a single fibre will not kill you.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb it and professional advice should be sought ASAP. Professional removal of it will likely be expensive but must be conducted by trained experts.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will note suspected asbestos during the survey and will suggest further investigation.
