HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Scunthorpe and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Scunthorpe property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Scunthorpe. What suggestions can the surveyor make? Does render make a difference?

Brick structures in Scunthorpe will experience a range of defects, from frost damage to cracks. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey, with directions for remedy.

A defect often found is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Bona-Fide Brickwork should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 296 Victoria Rd, Ruislip, HA4 0DP or 01895 674310.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include the use of 'clicker' or misfired brick. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of asbestos pipe insulation situated in the property. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and will the HomeBuyer Report in Scunthorpe go into it?

Properties constructed before the 80's will most likely contain any number of asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. textured coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in water tanks. It was primarily mined in the US.

All forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken however, never to displace it and professional advice should be sought ASAP. Getting rid of asbestos will probably be expensive but must be conducted by professionals. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Scunthorpe HomeBuyer report. However, surveyors will note potential asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.

Traditionally built property

What should we investigate when purchasing a house built in around 1730 in Scunthorpe? Will the building's age be an issue?

Many purchasers hope to own property with real personality. A property's age, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers. Houses employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.
