HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cookley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Cookley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it does give comprehensive details of the Cookley property's general condition and it includes advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos ceiling boards present in building. What is asbestos and can it be easily removed?

Asbestos is a harmful material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including pipe lagging insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, on no account to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will note suspected asbestos risks and will offer advice.
