HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in The Boltons and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the The Boltons property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the The Boltons property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1820s home in The Boltons with stone walls. Are there any major potential issues that we should be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Buyers of a Grade II listed building should consider that they may need to ensure any future repairs are 'sympathetic', which the local authority may police. Problems which impact stone-built The Boltons buildings can vary greatly, with issues like displacement being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to The Boltons buildings, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decoration. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is flaky white asbestos insulation in the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. Some types are found in the building materials such as textured coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in water tanks.

All forms including Chrysotile are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to break it and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will mention possible asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the thirties house I intend to move into I noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; does the The Boltons surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

When conducting a The Boltons Building Survey your RICS surveyor will add detail on the overall electrical system if it looks like they are in an unsafe condition. This should include a general (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection of the accessible parts of the wiring or fusebox in addition to things like confirming the condition of the fixed electrical appliances e.g. storage radiators. Inspecting any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician on the building will be part of the survey. Looking at any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in The Boltons .
