HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Oakham and which is cheaper?

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

If the Oakham property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Oakham property's condition in addition to information on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor give details on the safety of the gas installations?

The will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the gas pipe route for example, as well as gas affiliated fixtures e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. The Oakham qualified surveyor won't remove the fittings and he or she won't do any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Gas can be fatal, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Oakham, what directions can a surveyor in Oakham offer for houses built from Diagonal bond walls?

Brick converted property in Oakham will be subject to a range of defects, such as frost damage. For example, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and may require immediate attention. Kingston Construction should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 07986 918415 or 6 Joseph Lister Cl, Bootle, L30 5RR.

For home purchasers in Oakham seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. What is asbestos and does the Oakham home survey report on it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials such as Fuse box. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in flooring materials.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb asbestos and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will note potential asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.
