HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Edgwarebury and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Edgwarebury property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the Edgwarebury property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Edgwarebury property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties generate lots of maintenance costs for buyers? What potential issues must we watch out for, and what will the survey reveal?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Portland Fancy Beach Limestone. Issues including delamination affect many stone-walled property in Edgwarebury. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Repair advice often includes careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. What are the issues with asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials for example asbestos blocks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls for example. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to move asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the Edgwarebury survey and should suggest further investigation.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we would be advised to be aware of when buying an extended house in Edgwarebury in conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout the country which are overseen by the local council.

A Building Surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any effect may have on the home. House prices are usually more than prices outside the area as a result of conservation areas being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas have fallen into disrepair e.g. the removal front garden walls

Surveyors will report if the property is or might be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are conducted as part of the legal process. Out of keeping adjustments to the building may be noted but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
