HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Lower Edmonton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Lower Edmonton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Lower Edmonton property's condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Should I commission the full structural survey when looking into a neglected fifties bungalow near Lower Edmonton rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Frequently and incorrectly called a Structural Survey, it is no longer available has actually been reclassified by RICS and the proper name is actually now the Building Survey. This is the correct property survey when buying an unconventional property like a period house in Lower Edmonton. It will detail notable advice concerning the property's standard of construction and repair in addition to any defects after a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be powdery white asbestos sprayed on coatings in the property. What is asbestos, is there a danger and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a deleterious material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example shed roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in soil vent pipes. Technically all forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove the asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. They will note the risk of asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Is clay soil an issue in Lower Edmonton? Will my Lower Edmonton Property Survey look into this?

Factors from rising damp to acid rain can cause costs and inconvenience for a house-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of numerous issues, with uneven soil compaction and consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss being relatively common. In Lower Edmonton's relatively mild climate, the variations in volume which clay soil experiences will be barely noticeable, but extended dry or wet spells may well impact the soil's stability and affecting the property itself. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a house's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. A Lower Edmonton surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly.
