Home Buyers Survey in Hyde

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hyde and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hyde property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The next-door neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with loose tiles. What should we check when the property is surveyed?

Hyde properties that are otherwise ideal could feature roofing woes, like bad drainage. From the sheathing to the collar ties, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Your surveyors in Hyde may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A Hyde roofing specialist with solid references can provide a quote. Speak to P L Roofing of 14 Werneth Av, Hyde, SK14 5NL on 0161-368 8992 for more information.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a garage) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain a property valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To estimate the value of the property the valuer will pair local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Additional local Hyde area conjectures, such as use of parking or service connections, are made in addition to Hyde environmental problems like pig farms, which will also be factored in.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. What is asbestos and is it hazardous?

Asbestos is a pernicious substance. Some types are found in the building materials including roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength qualities and it may be found in roof gutters. The main origins of asbestos were South Africa.

All forms are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a solitary fibre is not fatal.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. Removing it is costly but must be completed by professionals.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Hyde home survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
