HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Feltham and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Feltham property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Feltham property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give comprehensive details of the Feltham property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a house close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. inert waste material disposal. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Concerns might include heavy metals .

Surveyors in Feltham will notice structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency databases as well as Richmond upon Thames Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We noticed that the sitting room door frame was skewed, is this subsidence? What subsidence-related matters will the Surveyor look into?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. However, subsidence should be distinguished from the normal settlement of a home.

Soil on sloping ground is not as stable as that flat ground and could then become unsteady and begin to slide downward. In some cases, the presence of organic material, which begins to rot, can also undermine the foundations. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be painted over, but loose asbestos situated in the apartment. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example asbestos packing in stud walls. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in central heating flues. Technically all forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken not to move the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will note potential asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
