HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Leegomery and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Leegomery property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Leegomery property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos walls situated in the property. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding qualities and it may be found in lagging.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately potentially fatal and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to remove it and professional advice should be sought ASAP. You should not attempt to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Leegomery

building survey. Surveyors will note the risk of asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a property we intend to purchase it looked like there was evidence of an overload of the fuses; does Homebuyer Report in Leegomery report on the wiring and fusebox?

When preparing a Home Survey in Leegomery a surveyor will usually mention the overall electrical system if it is suspected that they are in an unsatisfactory state. This should include an overview or examination of any uncovered sections of the wiring or fusebox in addition to areas like where to find the meter and fuse board .

Confirming the existence of any documents from any recent PIR carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Leegomery. Verifying the location of the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Leegomery .

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) strongly advise a PIR should be carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about pests affecting some homes - Do we need a residential surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. When purchasing a house, this matter should be borne in mind. Evidence may not be easy to find, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to a serious infestation can include destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
