HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Killamarsh and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated traces of blue asbestos may be lurking boiler cupboard at the property. Is this a major concern and are there any health risks?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example gutters.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in eaves. Technically all forms including 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 asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay. Never attempt to

get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during a Killamarsh building survey. However, surveyors will report on potential asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Stone block wall damage

Can properties partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for buyers? Which factors should we consider?

From Portland Fancy Beach Limestone to Stainton Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Problems which impact stone-built buildings in Killamarsh can vary greatly, with issues like mould being quote common. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with mortared rubble or brick hidden behind. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Repair advice often includes.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Eckington Colliery, Rotherside Road, Eckington, Sheffield, S21 4HL, which quarries Coal, Deep, for details.

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually examine any accessible parts of the system. This will include the condition of the meter as part of the Killamarsh survey, as well as gas associated fixtures e.g. associated asbestos. Any gas fittings won't however be removed.
