HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Kilburn and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Kilburn property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Kilburn property's general condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What do I need to pay attention to when buying an older property? What effect will the construction have on maintenance?

Some buyers have looked at purchasing a home with character. The age of a structure, however, can concern buyers. Kilburn property built using traditional methods can be expensive to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a property. Will the Building Survey investigate this?

Pests like house longhorn beetle may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Kilburn. This concern should be taken seriously. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. For example, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for pest problems may include removal of infected furniture.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there are asbestos ceiling boards in the maisonette. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a harmful substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including patching compounds. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent fire retarding qualities and it may be found in vinyl flooring.

All forms are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb it. Professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Kilburn HomeBuyer report. Your Kilburn surveyor should report on possible asbestos during the Kilburn survey and will suggest further investigation.
