HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Hayes and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Hayes property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Hayes property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1860s home with stone walls. Are there any related issues that need to be investigated, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Problems which impact stone-built properties in Hayes can vary greatly, with issues like algae being quote common. 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. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos wallpaper in the home. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as stove insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic tiles. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to break the asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on the risk of asbestos during the Hayes survey and should offer advice.
