HomeBuyer Report

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the North Baddesley property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the North Baddesley property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Window frame

In the HomeBuyer Report, what impact can a Condition rating 2 have on windows?

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. Colour coded ratings are used to communicate to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily. Excess condensation or vapour occlusions in a double-glazed window is an example.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there may be asbestos roof gutters present in the home I am buying. What is asbestos and how is it remedied?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves for example. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a one fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful never to displace the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. Getting rid of asbestos will likely be dear and must always be conducted by trained experts. Surveyors will not test for asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What warnings would a North Baddesley property surveyor give for a property built with stretcher bond walls? Are brick walls hard to repair?

North Baddesley brick-walled property can suffer from a number of issues, including moisture damage and defective mortar. One particularly serious issue is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Griggs A J of 17 Hawkins Way, Wokingham, RG40 1UW on 0118-978 5042.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
