HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Colwall and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Colwall property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Colwall property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Colwall Homebuyers Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be painted over asbestos ceilings being found in house. What is asbestos and how is it remedied?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. pipe lagging.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken never to break the asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on suspected asbestos during the Colwall survey and will suggest experts are consulted.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Flemish bond guidelines for upkeep, can you help?

Brick-built structures demonstrate several benefits, but they will also indicate distinct issues. This could be anything from badly applied render to crypto-florescence. For instance, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Barnard K should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 14 Freda Corbett Cl, London, SE15 6UN or 020 7635 8805.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). Consider renegotiating the price of the Colwall property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Window frame

In a Colwall HomeBuyer Report what effect can a an amber light rating have on 'E5 - Windows' ?

Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Water leaks around window or door frames is an example. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.
