HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Baildon and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Baildon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Baildon property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted cracks along the garage ceiling when we last viewed the property. What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture accumulates below ground level. This may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. In severe weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic

areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a building proximate to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. inert waste material. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues such as downs syndrome have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Baildon will consider structural issues connected with the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets as well as Bradford Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there may be a risk of brown asbestos ceiling boards situated in the flat. What is asbestos, can it be treated and will the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including ironing boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire blankets. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken not to break it and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. You should not endeavour to remove it yourself. Baildon Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Baildon HomeBuyer report. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
