Home Buyers Survey in Great Wyrley

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Great Wyrley and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Great Wyrley property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does give a thorough analysis of the Great Wyrley property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there may be a risk of brown asbestos ceiling boards situated in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials e.g. rain water goods.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in gutters. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move it and professional advice must be taken ASAP. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will note potential asbestos and will offer advice.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the unmodernised property I am planning to purchase, the agent said that there was no RCD on the fuse board ; will a Great Wyrley survey go into detail on electrical system condition?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Great Wyrley a RICS surveyor will usually remark on the overall electrical system if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous condition. He or she is required to give detail on things like checking the condition of fitted electrical appliances, for example heaters or verifying the state of the visible wiring. Looking at any evidence of the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician will usually be part of the survey.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can heavy rainfall have on our new house? Could damaged guttering lower the property value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact wet conditions can have on your home is rarely considered properly by buyers. One indication that downspouts are blocked is spalling masonry. This can lead to hazardous mould.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to repair fairly cheaply. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it worth paying slightly more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on sixties house ?

Full Structural Surveys no longer exist anymore Building Survey has now superseded it. You should choose a RICS Building Survey for the property mentioned. A HomeBuyer Report is enough for a mid 20th century of later Great Wyrley property built out of normal building materials. Be aware that a number limitations are integral with the survey as a RICS surveyor will not be able to open up the structure of the building nor can he/she inspect under floor (unless accessible).
