What building survey should I choose for my property purchase ?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Dore

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen when planning to buy a home constructed from conventional materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable order and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Dore

    A RICS Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Dore) will also be carried out by a MRICS or FRICS chartered surveyor and is more thorough. Choose this option for unconventional e.g. mundic properties.

    Property Valuation Report in Dore

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Dore and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Dore property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Dore property's condition along with advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos paper lining affecting the property. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. soffit boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in duct connectors. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken never to move the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately. You should never try to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance brings up bad memories for us. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the Dore house surveyor look into during the survey?

Dore residences that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious issues with the roof like. From concrete tiles to roof battens, many parts of the roof and loft will be considered. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Dore, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Dore, but it is a health and safety necessity. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Dore roofing specialist can provide one. Call Weston P M of 11 Westwick Cr, Sheffield, S8 7DL on 0114-237 7878 for an estimate.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor be focused on, on a smooth stucco house in Dore.

Stucco is in fact smooth type of render. Usually it is layered over underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very aesthetic and is/was found on Victorian and Regency homes. It is similar to plaster. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as animal fibres to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Dore Building Surveys commonly reveal any number of problems such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty in diagnosing damp underneath. Fixing Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.
