Looking for a Home Buyers Survey? Which one should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Nuneaton and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Nuneaton property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Nuneaton property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Nuneaton - What should we be concerned about during the survey work?

Properties in Nuneaton in otherwise fine condition will suffer difficulties with the roof, for example, incorrectly applied waterproofing. From the fascias to the valley gutters, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. The surveyors in Nuneaton could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like wholesale replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a local contractor a quote for any suggested work.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a possibility of asbestos boards around radiators affecting the property. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example vinyl flooring.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic including tensile strength qualities and it may be found in asbestos blocks.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb it and expert advice should be sought ASAP. On no account attempt to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a property I intend to acquire I saw that there were damaged electrical sockets; does the surveyor go into detail on electrical defects?

When performing a Home Survey in Nuneaton the RICS surveyor should usually make a note on the electrical system if it appears that they are in a poor condition.

This should include a visual view of any uncovered sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other things, for example confirming any external installations such as outbuildings or any external power sockets. Inspecting the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical installations carried out by an electrician should usually form part of the survey. Inspecting the evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by an electrician on the property should usually form part of the survey in Nuneaton .
