Home Buyers Survey in Pratts Bottom

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Pratts Bottom property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a thorough analysis of the Pratts Bottom property's condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Will there be any concerns I need to check out when purchasing a flat in Pratts Bottom in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local council.

Surveyors are trained to tell you if the planned purchase is/might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved adjustments to the property should be noted, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a concern of asbestos boards around windows being found in the home. What is asbestos, what are the risks and will the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example shed roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in soil vent pipes for example. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to remove it and professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Pratts Bottom home survey. However they will mention potential asbestos risks and should suggest experts are consulted.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact does damp weather have on our new home? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which rainfall has on homes in Pratts Bottom is not considered by buyers. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include damp stains around drainage. Whether buying in Pratts Bottom or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair, if identified early. However, if the drains are not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
