HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Adlington and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Adlington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Adlington property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Adlington house with Portland stone walls. Are there any related issues that need to be investigated?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Red St.Bees Sandstone to Westwood Ground Limestone. Issues including deteriorating mortar affect many stone-walled Adlington buildings.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. James Booth (Bolton) Ltd, New Haulage Depot, Manchester Road, Westhoughton, Bolton, Greater Manchester, BL6 3QH, which quarries Clay & Shale, for details. Call 01942 818800 for more information.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos wallpaper in the home. Is this a major concern and are there any health risks?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. Some types may be in building materials for example sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in sealant. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to move the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during the survey. They will report on possible asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about bugs. How do we investigate further?

Adlington properties will often be free of major vermin. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to pests can include insecticides and destruction of tainted materials. Your Adlington surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.
