HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Market Harborough and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Market Harborough property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Market Harborough property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

When buying a doer-upper Edwardian cottage property in Market Harborough - is it necessary to order a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed as the Building Survey. It is now the correct selection of survey if buying an altered house e.g. a tatty Market Harborough house. This non prescribed format of report will give salient professional advice concerning the houses condition along with any needs for future maintenance after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible areas.

Shocking Electrics

When we viewed the thirties house we are interested to acquire it looked like there was evidence of an overload of the fuses, does a Market Harborough Homebuyer Report write anything on electrical defects?

When carrying out a Building Survey in Market Harborough a surveyor should add detail on the state of the electrics if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state. A Surveyor should also report on possible problems relating to things like examining the condition of fitted electrical appliances, e.g. electric showers or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property will usually form part of the survey in Market Harborough.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers suggest an electrical check be completed every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a danger of flaky asbestos roof tiles in existence at the building. What is asbestos, is there a danger, can it be easily dealt with and Should we pull out?

Buildings erected before around 1985 might contain some materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a potentially deadly material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including pipe lagging insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging. The main origins of asbestos were the US. Technically all forms (including white) are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay. Professional removal of asbestos may be costly but must be conducted by trained experts. Market Harborough Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Market Harborough home survey. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
