HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Toddington and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Toddington property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Toddington property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Toddington Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact could rainfall have on our new Toddington property? And could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that this issue is ignored by purchasers. One indication that drainage systems are blocked is mildew or damp in the roof. Poor drainage can lead to rising damp.

Whether buying in Toddington or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 16th Century warehouse conversion. What effect will the residence's box frame structure have on regular maintenance?

Vernacular architecture can create issues for homeowners. Toddington homes employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be costly to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. Discuss this with your surveyor for further advice. As an example of Medieval building, Church of St George, tower in Toddington was constructed in around 1347.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a danger of flaky asbestos roof tiles in existence at the building. What are the issues with asbestos, what are the remedial options and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceilings.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb the asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos as part of the survey. Your Toddington surveyor should report on the risk of asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
