HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Aston Clinton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Aston Clinton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Aston Clinton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A Aston Clinton builder has said subsidence is worth checking. What subsidence issues will the HomeBuyer Report consider?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be repaired quite easily. In some older houses cracks are noticeable in Summer[ that close up in the winter] when the materials soak up moisture.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. For example, water leaking from a broken drainpipe will clear away soil which supports the structure. This reduces the volume of the subsoil, allowing the weight of the property to distort the supporting ground. In serious temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought.

Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses in Aston Clinton generate lots of maintenance costs for purchasers? Are there any matters that need to be investigated? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

There are a wide range of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Defects such as erosion of pointing joints affect many stone-walled houses. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there might be asbestos fireplace affecting the building. What is asbestos and does the Aston Clinton HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including home appliances. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in cooker insulation for example.

All forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and should suggest further investigation.
