HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Narborough and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Narborough property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Narborough property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice why not obtain a Narborough House Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How important is it to look into rainwater goods, and does our Narborough property surveyor mention it?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rain has on homes is usually overlooked. If you have only been to the home in the Summer, obvious defects may be harder to find, and may lead to damage to foundations. Luckily, these defects are usually easy to fix. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property constructed West Cornwall granite. Are there specific problems to bear in mind?

Upkeep costs for stone-built Narborough houses can be higher than for more standard. Defects such as spalling brick affect many stone-walled Narborough houses. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Narborough are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be asbestos ceiling material concealed in the property. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including central heating flues.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in garage roofs. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Narborough home survey. Your Narborough surveyor should note possible asbestos during the survey and will inform you of the options.
