HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Osterley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Osterley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Osterley property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof brings up bad memories for us. What should we do about roof repairs?

Questions like this are often asked of building surveyors by house purchasers who are aware that property can often hide damage to the roof. From slates to valley gutters, the roof structure as a whole should be investigated. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. It may be advisable to source an estimate

for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need Scottish bond upkeep guidance, can a property surveyor in Osterley help?

Brick-constructed converted property in Osterley demonstrate several benefits, but they can also be affected by considerable issues. These can include moisture damage or crumbling mortar. Your RICS surveyor should report on these, with directions for remedy. An issue of particular concern is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Horton I J at 12 Gordon Rd, Herne Bay, CT6 5QT should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01227 362799.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there might be asbestos boards around windows at the building. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example boilers.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in boiler cupboard.

All forms (including white) are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note possible asbestos and will inform you of the options.
