HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Telford and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Telford property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension, you should you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Telford property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Telford Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there are asbestos flooring materials being found in property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Telford building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous mineral. Some types are found in the building materials including duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation.

All forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to displace asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. You should never try to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? Is this a serious risk, and what solutions are to available to resolve this?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks. New buildings in Telford and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture accumulates below ground level. This may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Cracks are a plain clue of subsidence. Fortunately, these are in many cases benign. In severe weather conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This is not always as costly as some buyers fear.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

Damage resulting from flooding

We think this residence is located on a flood plain. Is there a major flood risk? Would our property surveyor check signs of flooding damage, or if neighbouring property have been affected?

Heavy rain, clogged drains and overflowing streams can cause flood damage, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. A flood alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a Telford home, such as via landscaping or paved areas sloping towards the property. The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a Telford home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. The surveyor may ask the seller about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
