HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Denham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Denham property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Denham property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the property we're buying, but we are not certain. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Any questions about pests affecting a Denham building may not be asked by the lawyer. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious. For example, woodworm can be extremely destructive, but fortunately their 'tunnels' in timber and wood furniture are usually quite easy to spot. Remedies to a serious infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there is a risk of asbestos insulation being found in the home. What is asbestos, what are the risks and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. asbestos blocks. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good fire retarding properties, it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace it and expert advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Denham survey. Surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it advisable to look into rainwater goods? And could it affect the property value?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather this issue is usually overlooked by house purchasers. One indication that gutters are at risk is mildew or damp in the roof. Poor drainage can lead to rising damp.

Whether buying in Denham or elsewhere, difficult gutters does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to remedy. If disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
