HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Kings Heath property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Kings Heath property's state of repair and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a cottage in Kings Heath. What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

A property's age can create difficulties for an owner. Property showcasing traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Traditional building materials may be required. This may make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.

Asbestos roof tiles

There is suspected asbestos lagging in the building. Is this a major concern and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in Fuse box. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, never to remove asbestos. Professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos during the survey and will inform you of the options.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should we check rainwater goods? Will the Kings Heath chartered surveyor report on this?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact rainfall can have on houses is rarely paid due attention by property buyers. If you have investigated the house in dry weather, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that drainage are blocked include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
