HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in New Farnley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the New Farnley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the New Farnley property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in New Farnley that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a kind of solid render. Normally stucco render is layered over underlying red brick hardens to form a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is highly beautiful and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian buildings for example. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very like plaster. It can have lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and New Farnley Home Buyers Suveys frequently focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which becomes saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the difficulty in diagnosing

damp underneath. Re-covering problems with stucco can be difficult as the skills are becoming rarer.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in New Farnley. Can a RICS surveyor search for possible flooding?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of property owners in New Farnley and across the country. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a Home Buyers Survey will inform your decision. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there could be asbestos lagging present in the home I am planning to purchase. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials e.g. coatings spayed on beams. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in cement sheet. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace it and expert advice must be taken urgently. You should never try to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a New Farnley HomeBuyer report. Your New Farnley surveyor should mention potential asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.
