HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Dartmouth Park and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Dartmouth Park property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give a thorough analysis of the Dartmouth Park property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a house in Dartmouth Park. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What will our property surveyor in Dartmouth Park investigate during the survey?

Residential property in Dartmouth Park in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheeting. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

Roof maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A Dartmouth Park contractor with professional accreditation can provide a quote.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am worried that there may be asbestos pipe lagging affecting the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern, what are the risks and does the building survey in Dartmouth Park report on it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including boiler cupboard. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in boards around windows.

All forms (including white) are ultimately hazardous and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken however, never to move asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. They will report on the risk of asbestos during the survey and will offer advice.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The agent suggested subsidence could be a concern affecting the house. What subsidence-related defects will my property survey inspect?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. Many homes in Dartmouth Park are built with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Subsidence can result from several issues, some common throughout Dartmouth Park. For example, water leaking from a broken drainpipe will clear away soil supporting the building structure. By reducing the volume of the subsoil, the earth is more readily displaced by the weight of the property. Signs of potential subsidence include rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness. Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
