HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Snodland and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Snodland property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Snodland property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Snodland Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos walls situated in the property. What are the issues with asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a noxious silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials for example coatings spayed on beams. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement sheet. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to remove the asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately. You should never try to remove it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your Snodland surveyor should note potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a maisonette proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: commercial rubbish. Nobody wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems for example gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Snodland will find structural defects linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database in addition to Tonbridge and Malling Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Conservation area

Are there any things we would be advised to check on if planning to buy a building in Snodland in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local council.

A Building Surveyors need to possess relevant knowledge of local area issues and the connection they have on the building. Prices is usually higher which is down to them resisting change. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in disrepair for example - the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors are expected tell you if the home is or might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are raised by your legal adviser. Unsympathetic modifications that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by the lawyer.
