HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Oswestry and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Oswestry property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Oswestry property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a flat close to Preeshenlle Landfill Site on Preeshenlle Lane and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. commercial rubbish. There are 1, 000's of sites affect many thousands of people in the UK including Oswestry. Concerns might include hazardous chemicals. Potential health problems for example gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Oswestry will flag up structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and Shropshire Local Authority and inform you if the search uncovers a local landfill site .

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this residence is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home buyers survey investigate indications of flooding damage?

Flooding in Oswestry can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and buyers and owners are understandably concerned. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Oswestry home in question is in danger. In addition, the HomeBuyer Report may offer advice to limit damage in the event of flooding.An awareness of characteristics of the Oswestry area likely to affect the Oswestry house also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood risk alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be a risk of asbestos pipe insulation in the building. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe insulation. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. Never try to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Oswestry survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the survey and should suggest further investigation.
