Home Buyers Survey in Iver

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Iver and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Iver property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give a thorough analysis of the Iver property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a home built in the early 50s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be a source of difficulty? Does the HomeBuyer Report cover this?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Specific problems include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Iver property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage.

Taking precautions, such as even minor landscaping so that the ground slopes away from the property, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be painted over, but loose asbestos situated in the apartment. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the HomeBuyer Report in Iver go into it?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as shed roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in soil vent pipes. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a single fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful however, on no account to move it. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Professional removal of it will likely be expensive must always be conducted by experts. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos during a Iver building survey. They will mention potential asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Iver Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a property valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To fully consider an accurate estimate of the value of the building the valuer will factor in awareness of the Iver property market and other factors about the property for instance: number of bedrooms. Your Iver surveyor will also consider construction methods and will use key assumptions, for example the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area conjectures like services, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like local Iver industrial considerations, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
