HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Low Moor and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Low Moor property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the Low Moor property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Low Moor property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there are asbestos flooring materials being found in property. What is asbestos, are there any health risks, can it be treated and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. stove insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic tiles.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful however, not to disturb it. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your Low Moor surveyor should report on the risk of asbestos during the Low Moor survey and will advise accordingly.

Conservation area

Are there any concerns we need to look into if planning to buy a converted house in Low Moor inside a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the connection they have with the home and its value. House prices are generally enhanced owing to them retaining original features. However many conservation areas have fallen into shoddy condition e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors will note whether the location could be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Low Moor Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your conveyancer.

Unauthorised extensions that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor. Cornwells are a local firm situated at 59 Town Gate, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD12 9JD should be happy help you with further information. Tel: 01274 675631

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a 1967-built flat in Low Moor and found cracks along the kitchen ceiling. What are the risks, and what subsidence-related defects will my home survey consider?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a home, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. Less common than subsidence, but which can be as damaging to a home, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

In regions with a high concentration of clay soil, a long period of dry weather will cause the moisture level of the soil to fall. This dries out and shrinks the clay, straining the foundations of the home and causing movement. Signs of potential subsidence include sticking doors or windows.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
