Building Surveys on houses

Shall I have a full structural survey if purchasing a dilapidated sixties home in North Woolwich rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Often referred to as a Structural Survey, this survey is now defunct and as it has been superseded by RICS and the right name is now the Building Survey. You would be best advised to go for a Building Survey for the house you are contemplating. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a mid century or later unmodified North Woolwich property of normal construction materials and methods. There are certain limitations come with any residential survey as a chartered surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the North Woolwich house nor can he/she investigate the internal state of any flues.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation.

All forms are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb it and professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. However they will note potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.
