HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Crowle and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Crowle property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Crowle property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to purchase a house in Crowle. What things will a Crowle surveyor take into account when carrying out a survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can add to or subtract from property values from kerb appeal to the modernity of the kitchen. .

The most reliable way for you to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part. Your surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A professional surveyor will always attend the house as well as factoring in the myriad of location related influences that have a bearing on values.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Can a House Survey investigate this, and what defects will be reported on?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Issues range from soil compaction or compression to swelling of the soil, both of which can put a home's foundations under great strain. Buyers should be vigilant for signs of clay soil subsidence or heave, such as cracks along the living room floor. A Crowle surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a deleterious material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as eaves.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in ironing boards. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break it and professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. However they will note possible asbestos and will inform you of the options.
