About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Maida Vale

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Maida Vale and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Maida Vale property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, you should you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Maida Vale property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a risk of blue asbestos fire doors present in house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. cooker insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in stove insulation. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken however, never to break it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. Your Maida Vale surveyor should report on suspected asbestos during the Maida Vale survey and will recommend professional testing.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I obtain a full structural survey when considering a doer-upper Edwardian house in Maida Vale rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently called a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, this survey is now defunct and has actually been given a new name by RICS and the right name is now the Building Survey. Opt for a Building Survey for the house you describe. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a post 1950s unmodified house made out of normal building materials. Be aware that a few limitations exist with any survey - a RICS surveyor is not authorised force or open up the structure of the house or investigate the internal state of any flues.
