HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ashby de la Zouch and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Ashby de la Zouch property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Ashby de la Zouch property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be powdery white asbestos duct connectors situated in the home. What is asbestos and are there any risks?

Property erected earlier than the mid eighties will probably contain any number of materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Some types are found in the building materials for example Fuse box. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in flooring materials. Most asbestos was imported from Canada. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay. Removing it asbestos may be expensive but must be carried out by experts.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. However they will report on possible asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On the HomeBuyer Report what impact will a green light rating have on 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

For a Ashby de la Zouch property, one example could be excessive seam runout on a bitumen roof. Roof coverings are inspected by the surveyor, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. Elements of the residence which the surveyor has determined to be in a good state of repair are awarded a condition rating of 1. This rating does not, however, mean that no future maintenance is required. Regular upkeep may still be appropriate or even necessary. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. RICS have mandated a specific format for the HomeBuyer Report to aid the creation of a useful and comprehensive report for both surveyors and home buyers. As a result, some sections may not be relevant to every property, such as reporting on the condition of the roof of a ground floor flat.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Ashby de la Zouch. Is there any London brick upkeep suggestions we should be aware of?? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick-constructed properties demonstrate several benefits. However, they can also show signs of both minor and serious issues. An especially severe issue is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Phase Brickworks Ltd may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 020 8555 9991 or 65 Woodford Rd, London, E7 0DJ.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
