Which Property Survey should you choose?

    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the right choice if planning to purchase a property made of standard building materials i.e. tile & brick, not dilapidated and not over 100 years in age.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    This is an independent valuation . This is usually chosen by cash purchasers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Ormesby and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Ormesby property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Ormesby property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a danger of an asbestos fireplace at the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern, is there a danger and will the home survey in Ormesby report on it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sealant. Technically all forms are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to displace asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note the risk of asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Sussex bond brick on this Ormesby house is badly worn - what should we do?

Ormesby conversions with brick walls can experience a range of defects. This could be anything from cracks to erosion. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with repair advice also supplied. A problem regularly identified is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Newton Brickworks should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at The Stables/Upper London Road, Black Notley, Braintree, CM77 8QS or 01376 569100.

Brick-constructed property feature in construction throughout Ormesby, leading to a range of courses arrangements and colours. For example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks.

If the Ormesby surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the Ormesby property we're buying, but we are not certain - Do we need a RICS surveyor?

Pests like woodworm may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Ormesby. This issue should be taken seriously. Signs may not be obvious, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal of infected furniture.
