Home Buyers Survey in Herefordshire

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Herefordshire and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Herefordshire property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Herefordshire property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there may be asbestos roof gutters present in the home I am buying. What is asbestos?

Property constructed earlier than the eighties will most likely contain some asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a dangerous substance of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. ceiling material.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in ceiling boards. It is mainly found in Canada. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos is costly must always be conducted by experts. Herefordshire Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Herefordshire building survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the Herefordshire survey and will recommend professional testing.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a house near to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms including non-hazardous refuse. Of course nobody would want to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Concerns include methane gas generation. Health issues for example downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Herefordshire will consider any structural defects resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
