HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Blyth and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Blyth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give you comprehensive details of the Blyth property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there might be asbestos pipe lagging in existence at the house. What are the issues with asbestos?

Questions relating to asbestos are not uncommon. Asbestos is a noxious substance. Some types may be in building materials such as pipe lagging insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging. It was primarily mined in Canada. Technically all forms are potentially deadly and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a one fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful never to break asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. Removing it will probably be expensive but absolutely must be completed by trained experts. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Blyth survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Blyth and are looking for buildings built with stretcher bond walls. What warnings would you give?

Brick-constructed apartments in Blyth do benefit from many advantages over stone-built property, but they can also experience numerous defects, such as spalling. A defect requiring immediate attention is thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks. Contact Regan Brickwork Ltd for a repairs estimate at 01732 824626 or 18 Beechwood Dr, Meopham, Gravesend, DA13 0TX.

A range of courses arrangements and colours of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. For example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Blyth property built in the early 80s, but it has clay foundations. Will my Home Survey look into this?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including compression of layers of the sub-soil. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable cracks along the kitchen ceiling, to complete structural failure. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Blyth, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property.
