HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Boston Manor and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Boston Manor property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out major works, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Boston Manor property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

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

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Sussex bond repair advice - can the surveyor assist?

Brick-walled buildings in Boston Manor can show signs of numerous defects, such as crumbling mortar. The house surveyor should report on these along with recommendations. An issue of particular concern is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Sowerby of 1 The Rise, Ponteland, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE20 9LJ on 01661 825145.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include English garden wall bond is often a mix of Flemish and Monk bonds. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there may be a danger of white asbestos ceilings in existence at the building. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials including flooring materials.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fireplace.

All forms (including white) are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to disturb asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Boston Manor survey. They will note potential asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to have the full structural survey when acquiring a modified regency property near Boston Manor rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally referred to as a Structural Survey by many, it is no longer offered as it has been given a new moniker by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors and the right name is actually now the Building Survey. This is the most appropriate RICS survey if buying an altered house like a dilapidated house. This survey will outline comprehensive and crucial information about the homes construction and uses along with any important technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building.
