About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Tipton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Tipton and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Tipton property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give a thorough analysis of the Tipton property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be a danger of asbestos pipe lagging concealed in the property. What is asbestos and is it hazardous?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceiling material.

All forms including Chrysotile are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to displace the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently. On no account endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note the risk of asbestos risks and should suggest further investigation.

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it best to order a full structural survey prior to investing in a converted, sixties first floor flat near Tipton?

The Full Structural Survey has a new title and is now named a Building Survey. You would be best advised to plump for a Building Survey for the flat you are planning to buy. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a mid century or later unmodified Tipton flat of conventional construction materials.

You should be aware of certain limitations exist with any residential survey as a local surveyor wont be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the flat nor can he/she assess serviceability of a boiler. Over and above house surveys, flat conversions add complexity. , and your appointed surveyor is only able to give details on the area within identifiable boundary of the flat, although he/she exist communal parts of the property such as the drains.
