Home Buyers Survey in Horsford

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Horsford and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Horsford property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Horsford property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is flaky white asbestos wall panelling present in the flat. What is asbestos and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example cooker insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in stove insulation.

All forms are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought ASAP. You should never endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However they will note potential asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Horsford property will contain an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost. To ascertain the valuation the valuer should use experience of property in Horsford and other things relating to the property for instance: general condition The surveyor will also consider style of architecture and make certain other assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as gas. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings.

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or connection to sewers, are made in addition to local environmental issues like railways, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Defective door frame

On a Horsford HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

External doors are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. In general, draughts and damp penetration around the frames will be included. Blocked drainage holes is an example of this. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any property buyers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.
