HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Kegworth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Kegworth property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Kegworth Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. What is asbestos, are there any risks, can it be handled easily and Should I be concerned?

Property erected prior to the mid 80's will most likely contain some asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a dangerous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in lagging for example. It is found all over the world including South Africa. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre is not fatal.

If found, care should be taken on no account to remove it and expert advice must be taken without delay. Getting rid of it will be dear and

must always be conducted by trained experts. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will mention possible asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a Kegworth home. Will a surveyor look into this?

Scare stories about property infestations are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as vermin as minor annoyances.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. If you strongly suspect an issue with vermin, or any pest, speak to your Kegworth surveyor

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a building with a converted attic in Kegworth. Will access to the roof be an issue?

This often causes anxiety for buyers in Kegworthwho have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many homes can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormer windows, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Roof repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Contact Steve Raynor of 45 Wilton Street, Nottingham, NG6 0ER on 0115-942 0934 for an estimate.
