HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in New Mills and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the New Mills property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the property, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the New Mills property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in New Mills, what warnings would a New Mills property surveyor give for property built from brick chimney?

Brick-constructed structures in New Mills demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be subject to diverse problems, including erosion and horizontal cracking. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat. Nicholls Darren should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 84 Stafford Rd, Oakengates, Telford, TF2 6JU or 01952 610020.

A range of styles and techniques of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. E.g. running, or stretcher, bond. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is flaky white asbestos wall panelling present in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example boards around radiators. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in Artex for example.

All forms are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken however, not to remove asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos during a New Mills building survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the New Mills survey and should recommend professional testing.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 19th Century cottage in New Mills. Will the age of the building be an issue?

Many purchasers would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a Tudor home. For houses in New Mills built before the 20th Century, age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. New Mills property built with traditional methods can be challenging to repair. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for a home in one of New Mills's conservation areas, Materials suitable for the work may be required. Contact your building surveyor for further advice.
