HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Stamford and which is cheaper?

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

If the Stamford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Stamford property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Stamford include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a retaining wall) and what does it include?

Stamford Homebuyer Reports a property valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. When calculating the value of the property the valuer will use local property market knowledge and other things relating to the property e.g. style of architecture The surveyor will also consider materials used and draw upon other assumptions, for example the building connected to mains services such as electricity. Surveyors ignore certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. RICS valuations assume that there are no expensive legal problems like no problematic restrictions. Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Further Stamford conjectures, such as access to a flat or connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of brown asbestos boiler cupboard being found in property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as insulating board.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in coatings spayed on beams.

All forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP. On no account try to disturb it yourself. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Stamford survey. They will note possible asbestos risks and should offer advice.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor examine the safety of the gas flues?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the gas pipe route for example, as well as gas affiliated appliances e.g. balanced flues. Any external fittings however, won't be taken off. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.
