HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Swansea East and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Swansea East property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Swansea East property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits for conducting the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys don't actually exist now as the Building Survey is the new more technical home survey. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if investigating a post fifties unmodified house of typical building materials. The Building Survey would be the correct one to go for the house mentioned. Following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house, a report (set out in the surveyor's individual format) is supplied to the purchaser outlining any notable insight concerning

the condition of the house. There are certain limitations with a property survey as a qualified RICS surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Swansea East building such as removing secured panels.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is an asbestos tank situated in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in Fuse box. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb the asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Swansea East HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a home in the region a refuse tip

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. domestic waste. Nobody wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns for example downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Swansea East will flag up structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Bradford Local Authority and advise you .
