HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Sharnbrook and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Sharnbrook property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out significant alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Sharnbrook property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a risk of blue asbestos fire doors present in house. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious silicate material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceiling material.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break it and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Sharnbrook survey. Surveyors will report on possible asbestos risks and will advise accordingly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Sussex bond upkeep guidance - can you assist? Does brick decay faster in Sharnbrook weather?

Brick property in Sharnbrook will experience distinct issues. A problem regularly identified is sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall. Galostar may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 6-16 Baron Rd, South Woodham Ferrers, Chelmsford, CM3 5XQ or 01245 328914.

For instance, header bond or Scottish bond are both used in Sharnbrook property. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the Sharnbrook home we plan to buy. What can we do?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This concern should be taken seriously. An affected home may not always be easy to identify. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies can take time, so if you opt to proceed with the purchase, check with a specialist how long treatment will take. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.
