Home Buyers Survey in Corfe Castle

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Corfe Castle and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Corfe Castle property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Corfe Castle property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the unmodernised property we are interested to move into, the agent said that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does the Corfe Castle surveyor go into detail on the electrical system?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Corfe Castle the home surveyor will make a note on the overall electrical system if it appears that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a visual view of exposed parts of the wiring on top of areas like verifying the condition of a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Reporting on any documents from a test on the condition of the electrical connections conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by an electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the Homebuyer report in Corfe Castle .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of white asbestos pipe insulation being found in the flat. What is asbestos, is it hazardous, can it be removed and What should we do?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging insulation.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to displace asbestos and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Corfe Castle home survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the late 70s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be the cause of many issues? Will my Corfe Castle Home Survey look into this?

There are a range of problems associated with clay soil. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. Signs like a sticking door in the garage can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Scottish bond guidelines for upkeep for the house in Corfe Castle we are purchasing?

Brick buildings in Corfe Castle will suffer from a number of issues, ranging from thermal movement to inadequate damp-proofing. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Edwards Geo A may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 0115-946 4160 or 1 Wynwood Rd, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 6NB.

For example, Flemish bond or Scottish bond are both used in Corfe Castle buildings.
