Home Buyers Survey in St Leonards On Sea

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in St Leonards On Sea and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the St Leonards On Sea property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the St Leonards On Sea property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a concern of loose asbestos in the home. What is asbestos and what are the remedial options?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. vinyl flooring.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good tensile strength properties, it may be found in asbestos blocks.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. You should never endeavour to remove it yourself. St Leonards On Sea Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your St Leonards On Sea surveyor should report on possible asbestos and should offer advice.

Building Surveys on apartments

Do I need to get a full structural survey prior to purchasing an abandoned sixties basement apartment in St Leonards On Sea?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a non period unmodified apartment of typical building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the suitable choice in relation to the apartment described. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the house, a written report is emailed (pdf format) and posted to the prospective purchaser outlining comprehensive and critical details on the construction of the house. There will be certain no go areas with any survey to be aware of because a chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the St Leonards On Sea property such as moving heavy furniture.
