HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Milford Haven and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Milford Haven property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Milford Haven property's general condition as well as advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we saw a sixties house we intend to lease it looked like there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does Milford Haven Homebuyer Report advise on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Milford Haven a surveyor should mention the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. Your surveyor should also give detail on things like checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of switch gear. Inspecting the documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Milford Haven. A check for the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE strongly advise a Periodic Inspection be completed at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).

Conservation area

Are there any problems we should look out for when buying a converted house in Milford Haven in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local authorities. Milford Haven surveyors are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local issues and the effect may have on the building. House prices will probably be significantly higher because of the areas being unspoilt. However a growing number have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors can be expected to advise if the planned purchase might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Milford Haven Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of asbestos wallpaper present in property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and Should we still go ahead with the purchase?

Asbestos is a harmful silicate material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation.

All forms (including white) are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to move it. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. Never try to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during a Milford Haven building survey. However, surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the survey and will advise accordingly.
