HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Lytham and which is cheaper?

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

If the Lytham property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Lytham property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there might be asbestos fireplace affecting the building. What is asbestos and can it be easily removed?

Asbestos is a harmful silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as pipe lagging insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging. Most of it was sourced from South Africa. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a single fibre will not kill you.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb it. Professional advice should be sought urgently. Getting rid of it will likely be costly but absolutely must

be carried out by professionals. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention suspected asbestos during the Lytham survey and should recommend professional testing.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Lytham. Is there a flood risk, and will the building survey investigate any water damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Lytham and nationwide, is a serious concern for residents. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the home surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas appliances?

The qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the routing of any gas pipes as part of the Lytham survey, as well as gas affiliated appliances such as the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The Lytham local surveyor won't remove the gas fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
