HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Henley On Thames and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Henley On Thames property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Henley On Thames property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an older farmstead in Henley On Thames. What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Some buyers in Henley On Thames have considered buying property with real personality. Use of traditional methods, however, can sometimes be an issue. Property showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to repair. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Henley On Thames's conservation areas. Mention this to your building surveyor for more information.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there is a possibility of a white asbestos toilet cistern at the property. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP. You should never attempt to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Henley On Thames survey. They will mention potential asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour said that amateur repairs had been a concern - What should we look for?

Houses in Henley On Thames that are otherwise ideal could unfortunately be experiencing difficulties with the roof. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from collar ties to trusses. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

The expense of re-covering asphalt, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A local contractor with accreditation can provide a quote.
