Home Buyers Survey in New Mills

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the New Mills property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the New Mills property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the advantages of carrying out the full structural survey rather than a HomeBuyer Report when considering a neglected home?

Albeit very often called Full Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike - these surveys are now called Building Surveys A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a mid century or later New Mills house made out of conventional construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is certainly the most appropriate survey to go for the house described. Once a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the chartered surveyors report will be provided to the prospective buyer outlining in depth and salient insight concerning the materials used for the construction of the house. There are certain limitations with any residential survey to consider as a surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the New Mills property for example removing roof space contents.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about if buying a property close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites take many forms including domestic refuse disposal. No one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Risks include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues like spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

House Prices

I would like to acquire a house in New Mills. What things will a New Mills qualified RICS surveyor consider when conducting a Home Survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could positively or negatively affect the price of property from noise from flight paths to the home having hard to change bad taste parts. .

The best way for home buyers to get a professional home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. Your chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is flaky white asbestos wall panelling present in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example boards around radiators. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in Artex for example.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken however, not to remove asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos during a New Mills building survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the New Mills survey and should recommend professional testing.
