HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Littleover and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Littleover property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Littleover property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be powdery asbestos wallpaper in the house. What is asbestos, what are the risks and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a noxious material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. rain water goods.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in gutters. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break the asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the property we plan to buy. What can we do?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Treatment for a serious infestation may include use of poison and removal or excision of affected timber.

House Prices

I want to purchase a flat in Littleover (DE23). The asking price is £74, 888. What considerations will a surveyor take into account during a survey ?

There is a vast array of things that can affect house prices ranging from the tenure i.e. freehold or leasehold to whether there are any conservation area infringements. It can help to set against flat prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The mean flat price recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £95, 488, which is £20, 600 more than the amount the vendor is asking for. The combined house/flat average was £115, 874. 6, Arboretum Square, Derby, City Of Derby, City Of Derby, DE23 8FN a freehold apartment recently sold for £120, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. A qualified surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A professional surveyor will always go to the property as well as allowing for the multiple area factors that can impact on the value of property.
