HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Ince in Makerfield and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Ince in Makerfield property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Ince in Makerfield property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the thirties house we are meaning to lease, the agent said that there were damaged electrical sockets; will a Ince in Makerfield survey write anything on electrical system condition?

During a Ince in Makerfield Homebuyer Report your surveyor should mention the electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in a dangerous state.

This will include a visual view of the superficial sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as possible problems relating to things like checking the category of any electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of a sample of light fittings. Reporting on any documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician will form part of the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a possibility of asbestos boards around radiators affecting the property. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as sealant. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof tiles. It is mainly found in the US. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of it will likely be dear and must always be carried out by trained experts.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will report on suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that the had been a problem with mould. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What aspects of the property's roof will be investigated?

This often causes anxiety for property purchasers who know how costly roofing work can be. Many homes can be hiding serious roofing woes. From wind braces to concrete tiles, the whole roof should be investigated. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Ince in Makerfield, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the building surveyors will look for a range of signs, including literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Re-flashing and re-tiling, among other aspects of roof repair, can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A contractor in Ince in Makerfield can provide an estimate. Call G R Miller Property Repairs of 18 Broadacre, Standish, Wigan, WN6 0SN on 01257 594850 to request a quote.
