HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cotgrave and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Cotgrave property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Cotgrave property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Cotgrave House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a flat in the region Bassingfield Gravel Pit on Radcliffe Road and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including inert waste. There are thousands of sites affect 100, 000's people in the UK including Cotgrave. Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns for example gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Cotgrave surveyors will consider any structural defects connected with the site. Your solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency databases in addition to Rushcliffe Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be insects at the Cotgrave home we're buying, but we are not certain - What advice should we get?

Houses are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am concerned that there is asbestos pipe lagging insulation being found in property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken however, not to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.
