Home Buyers Survey in Little Hulton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Little Hulton and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Little Hulton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Little Hulton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the thirties house I intend to lease I saw that there is an old fuse board ; does Little Hulton survey go into detail on electrical defects?

When performing a Home Survey in Little Hulton your surveyor should remark on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This will include an overview or check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the unconcealed sections of the wiring or fusebox and other areas like the condition miniature circuit breakers or reporting on the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting any documents from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Little Hulton. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Little Hulton .

The IEE suggest that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition need be completed at least every 10 years (5 if renting out). We recommend you always get help on electrical testing - speak to M F Electrical Services , 4 Partington St, Worsley, Manchester, M28 2SY .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be a risk of asbestos Artex concealed in the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as wall panelling.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in toilet cistern. Most asbestos was imported from the US.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

If found, care should be taken never to move it and expert advice should be sought ASAP. Getting rid of asbestos will likely be expensive but must be completed by professionals.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Little Hulton structure with a loft conversion - What does a property surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

Little Hulton residences in otherwise fine condition will suffer difficulties with the roof, for example, bad drainage. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the trusses to the parapet walls. The Little Hulton surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The expense of replacement of a failed dormer, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a Little Hulton builder a quote for any suggested work.
