HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Billesdon and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Billesdon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Billesdon property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Billesdon Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an older barn conversion in Billesdon. Will the building's age be an issue?

Many buyers would be interested in owning a unique or characterful property. For traditionally-built Billesdon property, age, however, can concern buyers. Billesdon structures built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to maintain. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials, which could mean expensive ongoing repairs.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there is a concern of asbestos roof tiles affecting the property. What is asbestos, are there any risks, can it be handled easily and Should I be concerned?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. roof gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in powdery sprayed on coatings.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful never to move it. Professional advice must be taken immediately. On no account attempt to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will note potential asbestos during the Billesdon survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a house but are worried about insects. Should we get a surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Evidence may not be easy to find, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include insecticides. If you strongly suspect an issue with mice, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor
