Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a possibility of asbestos boards around radiators affecting the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. insulating board.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in coatings spayed on beams. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Building Surveys on houses

Do I need to order the full structural survey if purchasing a modified Edwardian townhouse near Colliers Wood over a HomeBuyer Report?

Very Often referred to as a Structural Survey by some, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been reclassified by RICS and the correct name is now the Building Survey. If you are buying a modified house e.g. an extended house, Building Survey is now the best RICS survey to do. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a 60 year old or less Colliers Wood house built out of normal construction materials and methods. Subsequent to a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the house, the surveyor's formal report is delivered to the prospective purchaser giving comprehensive and relevant information concerning the standard of construction and repair of the house. There will be one or two limitations with any survey as a surveyor is not in a position to force or open up the fabric of the Colliers Wood house e.g. undoing electrical fittings. The following table for a simple guide on what is and is not included.
