HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hilton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Hilton property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer comprehensive details of the Hilton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw that windows in the kitchen did not line up when we last viewed the property. What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the Home Buyers Survey?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture accumulates below ground level. This may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Many houses develop superficial cracks in a window frame. This could be due to changes in temperature and humidity. In extreme environmental conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence, but this is not generally an issue in the UK.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

House Prices

There is a property in DE65 priced at £217, 459. What considerations will a local surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Hilton ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on the price of property for instance the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or the number and size of bedrooms at the home. It can help to weigh up prices against house values recorded in the same area for similar houses.

The means house prices completed between July and October in 2012 was £207, 859, which is £9, 600 less than the amount being asked. 3, Mill Pond Close, Hilton, Derby, South Derbyshire, Derbyshire, DE65 5GP a detached house sold for £496, 500 .

In order for you to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a professional valuation as part of the service.

The qualified surveyor should attend the building in addition to factoring in the long list of location factors affecting values.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be asbestos coatings spayed on beams in existence at the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including fire blankets.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in walls. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace it and professional advice must be taken without delay. Never endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
