Home Buyers Survey in Shipston on Stour

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Shipston on Stour and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Shipston on Stour property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Shipston on Stour property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be a danger of asbestos pipe lagging concealed in the property. What is asbestos, what are the risks and will the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. wall panelling.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken however, on no account to remove the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Shipston on Stour Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Shipston on Stour home survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we should on guard for if intending to buy a flat in Shipston on Stour in conservation area, particularly in respect of to property values?

There are thousands official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by the local authority. Your surveyor need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local issues and any effect they have on the building and its value. The value of homes tends to be greater because of them being unspoilt.

Surveyors are expected note if the house could be within a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are conducted by your solicitor. Unsympathetic developments to the property may also be reported in the Shipston on Stour survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may heavy rainfall have on our new Shipston on Stour home? Will the Shipston on Stour HomeBuyer Report give details on this?

I find it odd that the effect which heavy rainfall has on a structure is not considered by purchasers. If you have only visited the house in dry conditions, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that gutters are under performing include leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. Poor drainage can lead to rotten roof timbers.

The good news is that this is generally easy to fix if dealt with quickly.
