Home Buyers Survey in Priorslee

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Priorslee and which is cheaper?

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

If the Priorslee property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Priorslee property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A Priorslee builder commented that there is a danger of blue asbestos Artex present in house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. insulating board.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in coatings spayed on beams. Technically all forms including white are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Priorslee HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and should offer advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent said that the had been a problem with loose tiles. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of surveyors in Priorslee by buyers who are aware that property will suffer issues with the roof like. From concrete tiles to roof battens, many parts of the roof and loft should be investigated. Your surveyors in Priorslee may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

High estimates for roofing jobs (such as felting a flat roof) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.
