HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Wirksworth and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Wirksworth property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, you should you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Wirksworth property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled residential property. Are there any major problems that we should be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Upkeep fees for stone-built houses can be higher than for more standard. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestone can quickly deteriorate. Maintenance tips include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be painted over, but loose asbestos situated in the apartment. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials such as boiler cupboard. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in boards around windows. Technically all forms including white are deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, not to displace the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the survey and should advise accordingly.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor check out the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

A RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the routing of any gas pipes as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated installations e.g. chimney linings. The Wirksworth local surveyor won't actually remove fittings and he or she won't run any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations stipulate landlords are obligated to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .
