Home Buyers Survey in Swaffham

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Swaffham and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Swaffham property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations on the Swaffham property, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Swaffham property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a danger of flaky asbestos roof tiles in existence at the building. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Swaffham building survey report on it?

Asbestos was not prohibited until the late 90's and property built earlier than 1999 may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a harmful silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceilings. The main origins of asbestos were the US. Technically all forms (including white) are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a solitary fibre will not kill you.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to damage it. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Professional removal of it will probably be dear and must always be conducted by trained experts. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Swaffham survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.
