HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Thamesmead and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Thamesmead property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Thamesmead property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos lagging situated in the maisonette. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials including sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sealant.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos

is discovered not to remove the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. Your Thamesmead surveyor should note possible asbestos risks and should suggest further investigation.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A resident warned us about vermin on the street. What should we do?

Pests like dust mites may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Thamesmead. When purchasing a building, this matter should be borne in mind. Signs may not be obvious, for example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies to an infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. The chartered surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is damp weather an issue in Thamesmead? Could damaged drainage lower the property value?

I find it odd that the impact rainfall can have on properties is overlooked. If you have only seen the house you are buying in on a dry day, problems are unlikely to be visible, and may lead to staining of wallpaper and damp. Fortunately, these defects are quite easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive.However, the damage caused, where not cared for, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.
