HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Littleover and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Littleover property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Littleover property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need English Garden Wall bond guidelines for upkeep, can a surveyor in Littleover help? Is age a factor?

Brick-built properties do benefit from many advantages, but they will also suffer from various issues and defects. These can include erosion or horizontal cracking. For instance, thermal movement, caused by more extreme temperature variation, and resulting in vertical cracks and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Newman Geriant at 2/Ashleigh Gr/Penydarren Park, Merthyr Tydfil, CF47 8AG on 01685 370106.

Littleover home purchasers may need to consider that a number of popular courses and methods have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years,

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be powdery asbestos wallpaper in the house. What is asbestos, what are the risks and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a noxious material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. rain water goods.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in gutters. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break the asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 16th Century dovecot. Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

For houses in Littleover built before the 20th Century, age can sometimes be an issue. Property constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be difficult to repair. You should consider that specialist expertise may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as suitable timber, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. If you plan to make alterations to a period property, discuss options with your surveyor for further advice.
