HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Witham property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the Witham property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Witham property's condition as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there could be quantities of white asbestos roof gutters in the home. Which types of asbestos are a concern, is there a danger and will the home survey in Witham report on it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials including soffit boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in duct connectors.

All forms are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to remove it. Professional advice should be sought without delay. You should never endeavour

to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos during a Witham building survey. Surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and should offer advice.

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls I need to check on if planning to buy a converted house in Witham in conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are designated by the local council. Your surveyor must have sufficient knowledge of local issues and the connection may have on the property. Prices is usually enhanced which is down to the areas being preserved. However many conservation areas have fallen into a state e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors will advise if the home looks to be is so classified and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by your legal adviser. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it necessary to upgrade to full structural survey prior to buying a neglected, fifties warehouse apartment in Witham?

The Building Survey is now the correct term for the Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by the RICS. The Building Survey is now the correct survey to choose if buying a modified property such as a dilapidated apartment in Witham. A Building Survey should outline comprehensive and often critical details about the homes construction and uses as well as any maintenance needs, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings. .
