Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Blakelaw property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Blakelaw property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos cement being found in the building. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example ironing boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire blankets. It is mainly found in Canada. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not fatal.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to move the asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. Removing it may be dear and must always be completed

by trained experts. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will note the risk of asbestos during the survey and will suggest experts are consulted.

For advice on what steps to take with suspected asbestos, PATTINSON SCIENTIFIC SERVICES, Scott House, Penn St, Blakelaw, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE4 7BG will be able to advise - Contact: 0 1916071812

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor examine the safety of the gas appliances?

The local surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the condition of the meter as part of the Blakelaw survey, as well as gas related fittings e.g. chimney linings. Any external fittings or housings won't be dislodged. The gas system will not be tested. Gas is potentially deadly, if you have any worries about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Blakelaw, what input does a Blakelaw property surveyor give for a home with rat-trap bond walls?

Brick-built structures demonstrate several benefits, but they will also be subject to a number of issues. These can include frost damaged pointing or spalling. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey. One problem often found is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. For more information, contact a local builder, A Class of 3/Crowhurst House/Aytoun Rd, London, SW9 0UD on 07508 754058.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornamental chimneys, particularly common in Tudor-period property. Consider renegotiating the price of the Blakelaw property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
