HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Trelogan and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Trelogan property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Trelogan property's state of repair and it includes information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we investigate when buying an older property in Trelogan? What consequences will the house's wooden structure have on repairs?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing property with real personality. Older construction methods and materials, however, can be problematic, and Property constructed with traditional methods can be expensive to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could mean expensive ongoing repairs.Contact the property surveyor for more detail.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of white asbestos flooring materials at the house. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. roof tiles.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to break asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Trelogan Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Trelogan home survey. They will mention potential asbestos during the survey and will recommend relevant tests.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent has suggested subsidence has been a concern. Is this a major concern, and what subsidence information does the Trelogan house survey include?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. The builder will likely return to a new home within a few months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Subsidence results from a range of factors. Collapsed water pipes can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. In extreme environmental conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.
