If the Sittingbourne property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Sittingbourne. Is there any brick advice we should be aware of?? Does render make a difference?

Sittingbourne residential property with brick walls can be affected by several common problems. This could be anything from thermal movement to DPC failure. One serious matter is thermal movement, particularly on longer walls. Brickworks at 41 Kemble Rd, London, SE23 2DH should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 020 8291 2790.

For home purchasers in Sittingbourne seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is concern white asbestos ceiling material in existence at the flat. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as cement sheet.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken never to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. You should not attempt to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a Sittingbourne home survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos during the survey and will recommend relevant tests.
