HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Sowerby Bridge and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Sowerby Bridge property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Sowerby Bridge property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in lagging. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb it and professional advice should be sought ASAP. You should never endeavour to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence

of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Sowerby Bridge HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific residence being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a residence does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

As part of Section E2, these elements are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. A cracking asphalt roof is an example of this.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the past - What does the Sowerby Bridge surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

Property in Sowerby Bridge in otherwise fine condition could feature damage to the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. concrete tiles, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

Roof maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor in the local area with solid references can provide a quote.
