HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Mickleover and which is cheaper?

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

If the Mickleover property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give a thorough analysis of the Mickleover property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of white asbestos pipe insulation being found in the flat. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. shed roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in soil vent pipes. Technically all forms including white are ultimately deadly and

may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to disturb it and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Traditionally built property

We are buying a 19th Century barn conversion in Mickleover. What consequences will the building's thatched roof have on maintenance?

A property's age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Houses employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Especially for a home in one of Mickleover's conservation areas, Traditional materials may be required. This may be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs. Contact your surveyor for more information.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about an infestation. Should we get a chartered surveyor?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Mickleover building may not be raised during the conveyancing. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Remedies to pests can include traps. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
