HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Doncaster property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Doncaster property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Doncaster Home Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos wallpaper in the home. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous mineral. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. You should never endeavour to remove it yourself.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos as part of the survey. However they will mention possible asbestos during the Doncaster survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when buying a building constructed in 1730 in Doncaster? What consequences will the wooden structure have on regular maintenance?

The age of a structure can worry purchasers, and Homes built with traditional methods can be costly to maintain. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials. If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your building surveyor for further advice. Constructed in the 18th century, Cusworth Hall in Doncaster is a good example of a Post Medieval gentry house.

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a building proximate to Askern Sawmills Limited near High Street and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous waste. A huge number of sites affect many thousands of people in England and Wales including Doncaster. Risks include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Health concerns such as spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Doncaster will flag up structural defects linked to the site. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological data sets in addition to Doncaster Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
