HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Teddington and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Teddington property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Teddington property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a risk of blue asbestos fire doors present in house. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as painted over ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in lagging.

All forms (including white) are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful not to remove it. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Teddington survey. However, surveyors will note possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Chimney stacks

For the Teddington HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of an amber light rating defects affecting 'E1 - Chimney stacks' ?

In Teddington, examples include a chimney cap which is obstructed, loose or missing (or even an incorrect type for the flue). Possible defects are reviewed by eye, using binoculars if the roof is difficult to access. Defects which need some attention are rated 'amber' or condition rating 2, but they are not considered to be urgent or serious. They may also require frequent upkeep.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do I need to check downspouts? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact heavy rain can have on a home is not given enough thought. If you have only visited the house in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. This could then result in lasting damage to the fabric of a home.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix. If poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
