HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Stoke Poges and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stoke Poges property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Stoke Poges property's general condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Stoke Poges - What should we look for?

This is a common concern for buyers in Stoke Pogeswho have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. A large number of properties will suffer roofing problems. Every element should be checked, e.g. gables. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Stoke Poges, but it is a health and safety necessity. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work. Speak to Avenir Roofing of Serving Stoke Poges on 0800 163955 to request a quote.

Traditionally built property

What should we bear in mind when purchasing an old building in Stoke Poges? What should be budgeted for repairs?

Many purchasers would like to own a unique or characterful property. A property's age, however, can concern buyers. Homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. If you are uncertain, speak to the surveyor for more detail.

One example of traditional building methods is Wychert. This mixture of clay and straw is extremely rare in more modern homes. In Stoke Poges and other areas of Buckinghamshire, wychert construction is particularly common.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be powdery asbestos wallpaper in the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Stoke Poges building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a deleterious substance of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including cooker insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in stove insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to disturb asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.
