HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Burnopfield and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Burnopfield property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Burnopfield property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. What is asbestos and can it be easily removed?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including roof tiles.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in roof gutters.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to break asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled conversion. What defects should we be aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

There are many of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include erosion. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to buildings in Burnopfield, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What suggestions can a Burnopfield surveyor make for buildings constructed with brick?

Burnopfield structures with brick walls can indicate numerous defects, such as signs of movement. The surveyor in Burnopfield will cover these in his report, with directions for remedy. A defect requiring immediate attention is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. For more information, contact a local builder, London Brickwork of 35 Holmdene Av, Harrow, HA2 6HP on 020 8427 2910.

A good selection of methods and styles of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Consider renegotiating the price of the Burnopfield property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.
