HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Leyland and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Leyland property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Leyland property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

There is suspected asbestos lagging in the building. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Leyland building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly material. Some types are found in the building materials for example walls.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in wall panelling. .

All forms are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to move asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Leyland home survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos and will inform you of the options.
