HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Uxbridge Common and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Uxbridge Common property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Uxbridge Common property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Uxbridge Common Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Stone block wall damage

Can West Cornwall granite-built houses be difficult to repair. Are there any issues that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

The cost of upkeep for stone-built property in Uxbridge Common can be higher than for more standard. Issues including spalling brick affect many stone-walled property in Uxbridge Common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Stone walls require regular maintenance, such as use of traditional methods to maintain older walls. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there might be asbestos boards around windows at the building. Which types of asbestos are a concern, is there a danger and will the home survey in Uxbridge Common report on it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example coatings spayed on beams.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent tensile strength qualities and it may be found in cement sheet.

All forms are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos during the Uxbridge Common survey and should offer advice.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a flat in Uxbridge Common and noticed the driveway surface is broken and uneven. What subsidence information does the Uxbridge Common Home Buyers Survey include?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a building, but some degree of movement will always occur. New builds, for example, will need to settle under their own weight. Most homes in Uxbridge Common are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

Merely superficial cracks not caused by subsidence can be filled and repainted. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. Underpinning is a lengthy process used to stabilise the foundations of a property, and is required in around a quarter of subsidence matters. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.
