HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Stanmore and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stanmore property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Stanmore property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Stanmore. Can a building survey consider signs of flood damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m homes are exposed to flooding damage, and property buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a house in Stanmore through several routes, including window frames. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the house in Stanmore is at risk.

In the region of Stanmore, the The Silk Stream and the Deans, Edgware, Dollis, Mutton and Wealdstone Brooks and their tributaries status on 15 Jul 2012 was 'No warnings' (source: Environment Agency).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Stanmore surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as professional fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Stanmore will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate. In order to determine the correct valuation your RICS valuer will combine area knowledge and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Your Stanmore surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use other assumptions such as no damaging building techniques have been used. Surveyors will disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Additional local Stanmore area conjectures, for example connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental problems like pig farms, also being considered. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is an asbestos tank situated in the home. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials e.g. fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire doors.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to break the asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention the risk of asbestos during the survey and will suggest experts are consulted.
