Home Buyers Survey in Prenton

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Prenton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Prenton property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a risk of blue asbestos fire doors present in house. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a dangerous material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters.

All forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, never to remove asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently. On no account try to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on a flat ?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. When looking into purchasing a modified Prenton property e.g. an unloved flat, this is the most suitable home survey. It will provide crucial professional advice about the buildings condition as well as any defects, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts. Furthermore flat conversions involve shared parts of the building which cannot always be accessed. , therefore the surveyor is only authorised look into the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, although he/she also outline information about shared parts like such as shared hallways.

Stone block wall damage

Will a home with stone walls generate lots of maintenance costs? What potential issues should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like efflorescence will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to buildings, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used around doors and window frames. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Prenton home survey include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a garage) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Prenton building will include a valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost included in the cost of the survey. To estimate the valuation your independent surveyor will take into account local Prenton market factors and other considerations about the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also reflect on construction methods and make certain other assumptions like there being no major problems.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will be assumed that there aren't any expensive legal issues e.g. proper access over pathways. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Further area conjectures, such as access to a flat or connection to sewers, are made as well as any significant Prenton environmental issues like the area being prone to flooding, also being considered.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about vermin. How do we investigate further?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and affect the health of residents. Evidence may not be easy to find, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for insect infestation may include professional cleaning. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.
