Conservation area

Are there any problems we would need to look into if purchasing a home in Ravenshead near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors need to possess local knowledge of local area factors and the bearing may have on the home. Property Prices tends to be higher due to them being in good order. However a growing number have fallen into poor condition for example - unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are expected tell you if the house is or might be is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Ravenshead Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are carried out during the conveyancing process. Unauthorised extensions to the property will also be noted but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there is a concern of asbestos sprayed on coatings concealed in the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as boilers.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in boiler cupboard. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb it and professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact does damp weather have on a Ravenshead property?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet damp weather and the effect it can have on property in Ravenshead are not given more thought by buyers. If you have only been to the property you intend to purchase in on a clear day, issues may have been hidden.

Whether buying in Ravenshead or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
