Home Buyers Survey in Peterston Super Ely

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Peterston Super Ely and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Peterston Super Ely property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Peterston Super Ely property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a risk of asbestos flooring materials in existence at the apartment. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous structured mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including ceiling boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken however, not to break asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will mention possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a property I intend to purchase, it looked like there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; will a Homebuyer Report in Peterston Super Ely report on the wiring and fusebox?

When performing a Homebuyer Report in Peterston Super Ely a surveyor will typically comment on the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in a hazardous state.

This will include a visual inspection of the unconcealed areas of the wiring on top of areas like ascertaining the category of the electrical fittings in bath or shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. Inspecting any documentation from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician on the property should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Peterston Super Ely.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 16th Century gatehouse in Peterston Super Ely. What consequences will the house's age have on maintenance?

Many purchasers would like to own a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Properties showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. If you are uncertain, speak to the building surveyor for more detail.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Peterston Super Ely, and will the building survey consider any water damage?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flooding occurs, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.
