HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Treharris and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Treharris property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the Treharris property, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Treharris property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be asbestos walls being found in the home. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including walls. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good sound absorption properties, it may be found in wall panelling.

All forms including white are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to move asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. You should never endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. Your Treharris surveyor should report on suspected asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Conservatory

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Treharris home, what are common defects an red light rating impacting conservatory and porches?

Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for property buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a Treharris home. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property.

Section E7 defects include those affect any porch or conservatory attached to the home. Safety hazards, including floor-level glass and blocked escape routes from upper storey windows will also be mentioned in the report. A stair run that is too short or steep is an example of a Section E defect.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it worth paying a bit more money for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on an apartment ?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Full Structural Survey following its new title a couple of years ago by RICS. Commission the Building Survey for the apartment referred to. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a post 1950s unmodified Treharris property built out of typical building materials.

There are some limitations exist with a property survey as a RICS surveyor is not authorised, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, open up the fabric of the apartment nor can they look into the internal condition of chimneys.
