Home Buyers Survey in Bishops Waltham

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bishops Waltham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Bishops Waltham property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Bishops Waltham property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Should I pay a higher price for a full structural survey on a flat in Bishops Waltham?

The Full Structural Survey is now called the Building Survey.

The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a 60 year old or less unmodified flat assembled from standard construction materials. A Building Survey would be the right survey to opt for the flat mentioned. Following an exhaustive survey of the accessible parts, a written report is sent to the prospective purchaser specifying thorough and crucial professional advice on the materials used for the construction of the flat.

Bear in mind that one or two survey no go areas exist with any residential survey as a RICS surveyor is not authorised open up the fabric of the flat for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources. Over and above house surveys, flats typically make access more complicated and as a result the surveyor is only able to survey the area within identifiable boundary of the flat,, he may give details of shared parts of the property like shared roof spaces. For more information and a comparison of the differences between surveys see here.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including water tanks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. You should not try to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will report on potential asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
