HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Beaconsfield and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Beaconsfield property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Beaconsfield property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I am concerned that there is asbestos pipe lagging insulation being found in property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, is there a danger and will the home survey in Beaconsfield report on it?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example water tanks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sprayed on coatings.

All forms including white are ultimately potentially fatal and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a solitary fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to move it and expert advice should be sought ASAP. Professional removal of it may be costly must always be carried out by experts.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Beaconsfield survey. However, surveyors will note possible asbestos during the survey and will recommend professional testing.

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a flood risk in Beaconsfield, and will the building survey inquire into possible water damage?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes could all cause major floods. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property in Beaconsfield, such as via incorrectly fitted window frames. An awareness of characteristics of the Beaconsfield area likely to affect the property in Beaconsfield also enables the RICS surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Also included on Environment Agency's flood warning are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Beaconsfield and are looking for houses built with Fletton brick. What warnings would the surveyor give?

Beaconsfield brick-walled converted property can suffer from considerable issues, including DPC failure and thermal movement. Your chartered surveyor can investigate these as part of their report, with repair advice also supplied. One particularly serious issue is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact several local builders for quotes, including O'Neill Brickwork of 4 The Parklands, Stockport, SK4 1QZ on 0161-264 6033.

Beaconsfield home purchasers may need to consider that good selection of methods and styles are found in many homes built in this country. For example, Monk bond, which is similar to Flemish bond, but with two long bricks between every short one. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
