HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Plympton property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Plympton property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there might be asbestos fireplace affecting the building. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. Some types may be in building materials such as insulating board. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in coatings spayed on beams.

All forms (including white) are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful however, not to remove the asbestos and professional advice must be taken immediately. You should not try to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Plympton survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Plympton - What will our Plympton property surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Questions like this are often asked of chartered surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property could unfortunately be experiencing difficulties with the roof, for example, cracked and loose slates or tiles. Any part of the roof or loft, such as roof battens, ought to be checked. Your chartered surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Fixing a leaking roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a roofing specialist can provide one.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about if buying a home near to a refuse tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous waste material. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include methane gas generation .

Plympton surveyors will consider structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets and Plymouth Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .
