HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Henbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Henbury property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Henbury property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a brown asbestos coating spayed on beams affecting the flat. What is asbestos, is there a danger, can it be easily dealt with and Should we pull out?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in lagging. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos during the survey. However they will note the risk of asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Building Surveys on houses

Shall I get the full structural survey if purchasing a doer-upper regency house near Henbury as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly called a Structural Survey by agents and buyers alike, this survey is no longer available has actually been reclassified by RICS(Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors) and the proper name is actually now the RICS Building Survey. When looking into purchasing an altered Henbury house like a property in poor condition house, this is now the best survey. A Building Survey will detail notable details about the property's construction as well as any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts of the house.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor said subsidence has been worth checking. What subsidence-related matters will the Property Surveyor investigate?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement does happen in more modern homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. The building's weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, which will cease after a matter of months. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water builds up in the soil, which may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

New cracks wider than 3mm to the outside walls, or the widening of existing cracks, may indicate subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
