HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Colnbrook and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Colnbrook property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Colnbrook property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated traces of blue asbestos may be lurking boiler cupboard at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials e.g. roof gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in powdery sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Colnbrook Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Colnbrook building survey. Your Colnbrook surveyor should report on potential asbestos during the Colnbrook survey and should inform you of the options.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Colnbrook properties at risk, and does a home buyers survey inquire into water damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Flooding in Colnbrook can cause severe damage to both contents and property. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before water damage starts, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The property surveyor may ask the occupier if the Colnbrook property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Colnbrook Surveyor look for on a stucco coated house in Colnbrook that I wish to buy.

Stucco is dense render. Typically it is layered over brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is/was was often applied to Victorian and Regency homes. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Colnbrook frequently report any number of problems e.g. when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks. Other issues could result from the supporting significant loads such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Re-coating Stucco problems can be expensive as the skills are becoming harder to find.
