Home Buyers Survey in Stone

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stone and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Stone property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations on the Stone property, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Stone property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a flat next to Meece 1 - Inert & Non Hazardous Landfill Site on Swynnerton and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert waste material. A huge number of sites affect 100, 000's people throughout the UK including Stone. Risks might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Stone will consider any structural issues connected with the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Stafford Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Stone but are worried about pests. Will a residential surveyor look into this?

Stone property will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be very expensive to resolve. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to insect infestation can include traps and removal of infected furniture.RICS guidelines on the issue of pests are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your home surveyor.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. What is asbestos and is it hazardous?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. boards around radiators. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in artex.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb it and professional advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Stone building survey. Your surveyor will report on potential asbestos during the Stone survey and will recommend relevant tests.
