HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Leeds property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Leeds property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the period property we want to purchase We noticed that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; will the surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

During a Leeds Home Buyers Survey your RICS surveyor will usually add detail on the electrical system if it is clear that they are in a poor state. This should include a general look-over of any revealed sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. on top of potential areas for concern such as checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of light fittings and switch gear. Verifying the location of the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) advise an electrical system check need be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. What is asbestos and is it hazardous?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including ceiling boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers. Technically all forms including white are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken on no account to move the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Never attempt to remove it yourself. Leeds Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos risks and will offer advice.
