HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Carnforth and which would be the cheapest?

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

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

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does give comprehensive details of the Carnforth property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits for choosing the full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Full Structural Surveys do not exist now and the Building Survey has now superseded it. We recommend that you choose a Building Survey for the house referred to. A HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a post 1950s unmodified home of conventional building materials. Be aware that certain provisos come with a Building Survey as a qualified RICS surveyor is not authorised (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the structure of the property for example, or assess serviceability of a boiler.

Stone block wall damage

Can Ham Hill stone-built houses in Carnforth be hard to upkeep. What should we look in to?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Farmington Stone. Problems which impact stone-built homes in Carnforth can vary greatly, with issues like spalling brick being quote common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Leapers Wood Quarry, Kellett Road, Over Kellet, Carnforth, Lancashire, LA6 1BP, which quarries Limestone, for details. Call 01524 732135 for more information.

If you need more assistance, get in touch with a local firm - Sharpe G L, Old Railway Goods Yard, Warton Rd, Carnforth, LA5 9EU (Phone: 01524 736533) could help.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of white asbestos flooring materials at the house. What is asbestos, is there a danger and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a harmful substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials e.g. wall panelling.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to remove asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Carnforth building survey. They will report on suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
