About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Heckington

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Heckington and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Heckington property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Heckington property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the reason to commission a full structural survey when acquiring a derelict terraced property in Heckington instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit commonly called Structural Surveys buy agents and buyers alike - this most technical survey has been replaced by Building Surveys Go for a RICS Building Survey for the house mentioned. The HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough for a post 1950s unmodified Heckington house made out of normal construction materials and methods.

Bear in mind that certain limitations exist with any survey as a surveyor wont be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the structure of the property nor can they survey where hatches are over 3m above ground.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos pipe lagging insulation at the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. Some types are found in the building materials including home appliances. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in cooker insulation.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to move it. Professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Heckington home survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the Heckington survey and should inform you of the options.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about pests on the road. What advice should we get?

Pests like cluster flies may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Heckington. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison. If you believe cluster flies, or any pest, may be present, request that your home surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
