About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Holly Village

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Holly Village and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Holly Village property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Holly Village property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor check out the state of the gas heaters?

Your qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually examine any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at whether the mains is connected as part of the survey, as well as gas related appliances or installations for example - flue/chimney maintenance. However, the Holly Village local surveyor will not remove the fittings and he or she won't run any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially unsafe, should you have any concerns about gas, call a gas engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to commission appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be powdery white asbestos duct connectors situated in the home. What is asbestos and does the Holly Village HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. pipe lagging.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe insulation. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to break it. Professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect could wet conditions have on our new Holly Village house? Could damaged drainage lower the property value?

Both in Holly Village, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the impact wet conditions can have on Holly Village houses is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers. If you have only visited the new home on a sunny day, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Signs that drainage systems are at risk include mildew in the attic.

In most cases, these defects are generally easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If left untreated, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
