HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Robin Hoods Bay and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Robin Hoods Bay property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Robin Hoods Bay property's condition along with advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Robin Hoods Bay house surveyor check possible flood damage, or if other properties have been affected?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty; sensible owners and home purchasers in Robin Hoods Bay are right to consider precautions.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Robin Hoods Bay area likely to affect the Robin Hoods Bay home also enables the building surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The building surveyor may ask the current owner if the Robin Hoods Bay home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be indications of an asbestos Fuse box concealed in the flat. What is asbestos, is there a danger, can it be easily dealt with and Should we pull out?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous structured mineral. Some types may be in building materials for example ceiling boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in boilers. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will note potential asbestos during the survey and will offer advice.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for London brick repair tips - can a Robin Hoods Bay surveyor assist? Is age a factor?

Brick-walled flats in Robin Hoods Bay can be affected by a range of defects. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with repair advice also supplied. One serious matter is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. Contact DGL Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 0161-370 0146 or 10 Marina Rd, Droylsden, Manchester, M43 7DB.

A great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture of brick building are found in many homes built in this country. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
