Home Buyers Survey in Hilperton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Hilperton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Hilperton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Hilperton property's condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

In a Hilperton HomeBuyer Report what impact can a Condition rating 3 have on 'E9 - Other' ?

One example issue could be mechanical damage to a conservatory roof. This category is used for external elements that require reporting which do not fit into the other categories. Your surveyor can provide more details if required.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, unlike some more complex survey reports. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green how concerning each aspect of the report is. Matters which require urgent action are highlighted with a 'red' or condition rating of 3. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be signs of asbestos textured coatings situated in the building. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as fire doors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in duct connectors.

All forms including white are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break asbestos. Professional advice should be sought immediately.

Hilperton Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Hilperton HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will note suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the argument for having the full structural survey if purchasing a defective semi detached home in Hilperton as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often referred to as a Full Structural Survey, it is no longer offered has actually been given a new name by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. The HomeBuyer Report is sufficient if investigating a 60 year old or less unmodified Hilperton property built out of conventional construction materials. A RICS Building Survey is certainly the advisable selection in relation to the property described. Usually within 2 to 3 days after an exhaustive survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings a written report (digital and written copy) will be dispatched to you running through in depth and serious advice in relation to the construction of the house.

There are several limitations exist with the survey as your local Hilperton surveyor cannot (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the house nor can he/she inspect under floor (unless accessible).
