HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wickersley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Wickersley property's condition along with information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

As it is more expensive, what is the justification of carrying out the full structural survey when investing in a dilapidated semi detached property near Wickersley as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly referred to as the Structural Survey by many home buyers, it is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been given a new moniker by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a 60 year old or less Wickersley home of conventional construction materials. A Building Survey is certainly the right one to go for the property mentioned. After a thorough inspection of the accessible parts of the house, the chartered surveyors report will be posted and emailed to the prospective purchaser providing any notable advice about the construction of the home. Bear in mind that some

limitations exist with a property survey as a qualified RICS surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the building or comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there could be brown asbestos Artex affecting the home. Why would there be asbestos, are there any health risks and will the building survey in Wickersley report on it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials including sprayed on coatings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in sealant for example. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during a Wickersley building survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Wickersley, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the shower room. Should we get a residential surveyor?

Wickersley houses are generally free of pest problems, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. This matter should be taken seriously. An affected house may not always be easy to identify.

For example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for pests may include traps. If you believe lice, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
