HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Locksbottom and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Locksbottom property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Locksbottom property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency house in Locksbottom that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a form of render. Typically it is applied to brick that sets to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is highly beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Regency houses. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors commonly highlight any number of problems for example, damp trapped behind paint which cannot escape leading to worsening damp issues.

Another example of problems may be when water enters beneath windows which results in large areas of detachment. Re-coating problems may be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.

There is a detached house in BR6 with an asking price of £410, 155. What factors will qualified surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Locksbottom ?

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is some brown asbestos sealant concealed in the house. Is this a major concern and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including eaves.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in ironing boards.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to break it and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Locksbottom home survey. However, surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the survey and will recommend professional testing.
