Home Buyers Survey in Holywell

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Holywell property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Holywell property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

My husband spotted signs of bugs in the living room. What can we do?

Houses are not usually impacted by serious cases of pests, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Treatment for an infestation may include professional cleaning and removal of infected furniture. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there could be asbestos lagging present in the home I am planning to purchase. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including ironing boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire blankets. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace it. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Holywell building survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will offer advice.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. Are there specific factors to bear in mind, and what does the survey cover?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of properties. Defects such as delaminated render affect many stone-walled properties. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.
