Home Buyers Survey in Kirkbymoorside

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kirkbymoorside and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kirkbymoorside property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Kirkbymoorside property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a building close to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes including inert rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include chemicals like dioxins. Health problems such as congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Kirkbymoorside will examine structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Ryedale Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that the had been a problem with amateur repairs, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the loft be a problem?

Homes in Kirkbymoorside that are otherwise ideal may be exposed to issues with the roof like. From slates to valley gutters, the whole roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

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. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of brown asbestos boiler cupboard being found in property. Is this a major concern and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic ceilings for example.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to remove it and professional advice should be sought immediately. Kirkbymoorside Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Kirkbymoorside building survey. They will mention possible asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

External walls

In the HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects for 'E4 - Main walls' ?

All visible issues relating to the outside elevations and foundations are checked, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. The damp proof course is also covered under Section E4. Deteriorating or spalling bricks is one defect applicable to this section. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Kirkbymoorside are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house buyers a clear understanding of the impact on the property individual defects may have. Red, or condition rating 3, defects are serious, or require immediate attention. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert.
