Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can damp weather have on a Frampton Cotterell house? If there is damage, will they be costly to fix?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather this issue is not considered by house purchasers. If you have only visited the property you intend to purchase in good weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that downspouts are under performing include spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy, if not neglected. However, if the drains are not maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be signs of asbestos textured coatings situated in the building. What is asbestos and will the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a harmful substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example Fuse box.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in flooring materials. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to move asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Frampton Cotterell building survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will insects affect the purchase price of a property in Frampton Cotterell. Is a HomeBuyer Report advisable?

Property in Frampton Cotterell are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. Signs may not be obvious, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for pests may include use of poison. The Frampton Cotterell surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
