HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Alperton and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Alperton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Alperton property's state of repair as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Defective door frame

On a Alperton HomeBuyer Report what can 'E6 - Outside doors' include?

External doors are checked where keys are available, but not forced open. In general, glazing and safety glass issues are also checked. A rusting metal door frame is one defect applicable to this section. RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a flat proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including inert waste. No one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health issues for example congenital birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveys in Alperton will consider structural issues resulting from the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark data sets in addition to Ealing Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be signs of asbestos textured coatings situated in the building. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials e.g. rain water goods. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in gutters. Technically all forms including white are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to remove it. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Alperton HomeBuyer report. However they will report on possible asbestos during the Alperton survey and should suggest further investigation.
