HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Fallowfield and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Fallowfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Fallowfield property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Fallowfield, what input does a surveyor in Fallowfield give for a 20s house with Dutch bond brick? Does brick decay faster in Fallowfield weather?

Brick Fallowfield properties will experience numerous defects. These can include lack of a damp proof course or thermal movement. Your chartered surveyor would usually include these. One frequently reported defect is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact Bainbridge G Ltd for a repairs estimate at 023 9258 5314 or 12 Anthony Grove, Gosport, PO12 4AS.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a

brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns we would need to be conscious of when purchasing a property in Fallowfield near a conservation area, particularly in respect of to house prices?

There are thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local authority. Fallowfield surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of local area issues and any bearing may have on the building and its value. Property Prices will likely be greater as a result of them being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to note whether the building is possibly in a conservation area and Section I of a Fallowfield Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are raised by your legal representation. Unconsented changes to the building may also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by the solicitor.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be powdery white asbestos sprayed on coatings in the property. What is asbestos and is it dangerous?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including boiler cupboard. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in boards around windows. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, not to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay. You should never attempt to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during a Fallowfield building survey. They will report on potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.
