Home Buyers Survey in Comberton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Comberton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Comberton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Comberton property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to look into downspouts? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Regular rainfall is common in Comberton and across the country, but the impact rain can have on homes in Comberton is not given more thought. Signs that downspouts are at risk include flaking or efflorescence on external walls. Blocked rainwater goods can result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

Fortunately, this is quite easy to repair. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Building Surveys on houses

Are there any reasons for doing the full structural survey instead of a HomeBuyer Report if purchasing a doer-upper cottage?

Full Structural Surveys are now defunct and the new format which has been classified as the Building Survey, is now available. It is now the most appropriate property survey when buying an unconventional home like a neglected Comberton house. A Building Survey can give comprehensive and often serious advice on the Houses state of repair along with any defects, shortly after a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos paper lining in existence at the property. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in eaves for example.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken not to remove it and professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However they will report on the risk of asbestos during the survey and should advise accordingly.
