HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Headley and which one would be cheaper?

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 Headley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Headley property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Headley property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I am worried that there may be asbestos pipe lagging affecting the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. Some types are found in the building materials including artex. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in the home appliances for example.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful however, on no account to move asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay. You should never endeavour

to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Headley? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? We're concerned about replacement costs.

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that the effect which rainfall has on your home is overlooked. If you have investigated the property you intend to purchase on a clear day, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage systems are a cause for concern include corroded downspouts, and may lead to fungi or mould which can be a health risk. Fortunately, guttering issues are usually easy to resolve for a reasonable cost. If left untreated, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Headley and are looking for a property built from brick walls. What directions can the surveyor offer?

Brick-built Headley houses demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also show signs of a range of defects. One problem often found is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Brownrigg V P at 12 Lytham Dr, Winsford, CW7 2GH should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01606 550550.

For example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. 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.
