Home Buyers Survey in Merriott

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Merriott and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Merriott property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Merriott property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond upkeep guidance, can a Merriott property surveyor help?

Brick-constructed homes in Merriott demonstrate several benefits compared to other building materials, but they can also suffer from both minor and serious issues. This could be anything from cracks to inadequate damp-proofing. The chartered surveyor would usually include these, with directions for remedy. One problem often found is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. C & D Bricklaying Specialists Ltd at 26 Cranham La, Churchdown, Gloucester, GL3 2NN on 01452 854460.

For example, shiner bond or header bond may be used in the construction of homes in Merriott. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a danger of asbestos duct connectors being found in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal fibrous mineral. Some types may be in building materials such as boards around windows.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in boards around radiators.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful never to displace asbestos and professional advice should be sought immediately. You should never try to disturb it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Merriott home survey. Your Merriott surveyor should report on potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the mid-century home I am intending to move into I saw that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; does the Merriott surveyor go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Merriott your surveyor will typically comment on the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a poor state of repair. A Home surveyor should also potential areas for concern such as where to find the meter or checking the condition of a sample of light fittings. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician on the building should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Merriott.

The IEE advise a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).
