HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Ruthin and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Ruthin property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Ruthin property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In the HomeBuyer Report what can 'E2 - Roof coverings' cover?

A fairly common example may be splitting of roof elements. As part of Section E, E2 reports on flat and sloped roof issues. These will be reviewed, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, unlike some more complex survey reports. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of asbestos pipe insulation situated in the property. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous structured mineral of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example sealant. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength qualities and it may be found in roof tiles.

All forms (including white) are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. You should not try to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Ruthin HomeBuyer report. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a house in Ruthin, does the RICS surveyor investigate signs of flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and property buyers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a house through several routes, including poorly installed doors. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
