Home Buyers Survey in Chadderton

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Chadderton property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Chadderton property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of blue asbestos textured coatings in the apartment. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and will the HomeBuyer Report in Chadderton go into it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials including duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in insulating board. The main origins of asbestos were Canada.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a single fibre is not fatal.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Professional removal of asbestos will likely be costly but must be conducted by experts. Chadderton Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and will offer advice.

Building Surveys on houses

We are investing in a derelict period end of terrace property in Chadderton, should I upgrade to a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now known as the Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a mid 20th century of later Chadderton property assembled from standard construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is definitely the proper survey to opt for the house mentioned. After a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building, the chartered surveyors report will be sent to you setting out any far-reaching details on the state of repair of the building. There are a number provisos exist with the survey as a local surveyor is not authorised force or open up the fabric of the property nor can he/she advise whether drainage meets appropriate regulations.

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this property is located near a stream. Is there a major flood risk? Would our home surveyor inquire into indications of flood damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause water damage caused by flooding, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. The surveyor may ask the vendor or agent about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a barn conversion in Chadderton. Will the house's age be an issue?

A property's age can concern buyers. Chadderton property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could create disruption for new owners.If you plan to make alterations to a period residence, discuss options with your chartered surveyor for further advice.
