Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be signs of asbestos textured coatings situated in the building. What is asbestos, is there a danger and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic including tensile strength qualities and it may be found in roof gutters.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have heard that Abersychan property built on clay soil can experience problems. Will your Abersychan Home Buyers Survey look into this?

If not monitored appropriately, the make up of the soil surrounding a home's foundations can create difficulties. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to soil movement, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Drought, for instance, can have a obvious contracting effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Signs like a hard-to-open kitchen door can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a property near to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms including commercial refuse disposal. Nobody wants to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems for example abdominal wall problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural problems linked to the site. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Blaenau Gwent Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
