HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Nettleham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Nettleham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Nettleham property's general condition as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Sussex bond repair tips for the Victorian house we're going to buy? Does render make a difference?

Nettleham properties with brick walls can experience several common problems. These can include DPC failure or vertical cracking. One serious matter is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. Barnes & West may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Old Orchard Ho/19 Lambley Rd, Lowdham, Nottingham, NG14 7AZ or 0115-966 5131.

For home purchasers in Nettleham seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like shiner bond describes bricks are laid horizontally as with more common bonds, but the with the wider face parallel to the wall. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a Nettleham property and the seller's agent has confirmed that it has been built with Ham Hill stone. Are there any issues that need to be investigated?

There are numerous of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be a danger of asbestos pipe lagging concealed in the property. What is asbestos and does the Nettleham home survey report on it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example cooker insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in stove insulation.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb asbestos and professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Nettleham home survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
