Home Buyers Survey in Frenchay Common

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Frenchay Common and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Frenchay Common property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Frenchay Common property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. Some types may be in building materials including roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength qualities and it may be found in roof gutters. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos as part of the survey. Your Frenchay Common surveyor should note the risk of asbestos during the Frenchay Common survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a home in Frenchay Common. Will access to the roof be time consuming to arrange?

This often causes anxiety for purchasers. Many homes can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheathing to the collar beams. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as asbestos cement removal) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A Frenchay Common roofing specialist can provide an estimate.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to go for the full structural survey if purchasing a neglected thirties townhouse in Frenchay Common over a HomeBuyer Report?

Recurrently still called a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, it is no longer offered has actually been re-titled by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. Commission a Building Survey in relation to the house mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report is enough if buying a mid 20th century of later unmodified Frenchay Common property built out of standard building materials. Bear in mind that one or two limitations come with a Building Survey insofar as a qualified RICS surveyor cannot open up the structure of the house for example, or assess the serviceability of energy sources.
