HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Hightown and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Hightown property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hightown property's general condition in addition to advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will vermin affect the purchase price of a home in Hightown. Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Regrettably, vermin can seriously reduce the value of a property and carry serious health risks. Evidence may not be easy to find, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. Remedies to vermin can include removal of infected furniture.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a danger of an asbestos fireplace at the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Hightown building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. shed roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in soil vent pipes. The main origins of asbestos were the US. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, on no account to remove the asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP. Removing it will likely be costly but must be carried out by trained experts. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and will offer advice.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What directions can a surveyor in Hightown offer for a 40s property with Fletton brick?

Brick-constructed structures in Hightown do benefit from many advantages, but they can also experience diverse problems. These issues will be mentioned in the report. One serious matter is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. WG Brickwork at 128 Bradmore Way, Coulsdon, CR5 1PB should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01737 552950.

A number of popular courses and methods of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. One example is running, or stretcher, bond. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
