HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Waddington and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Waddington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Waddington property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there may be asbestos roof gutters present in the home I am buying. What are the risks of asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in insulating board for example. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. Never attempt to handle it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Damaged Render

What problems will my Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated house in Waddington which we wish to buy.

Stucco is a smooth and flat render. Normally stucco render is applied to brick to form a very smooth surface. The finish is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency properties. It is very like plaster. it can be prone to defect and Waddington Homebuyer Reports commonly focus on any number of problems for example, when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which becomes saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the heavy loads such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-coating problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I should be aware of if intending to buy a flat in Waddington in a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are designated by local councils.

A Building Surveyors must have relevant knowledge of local factors and the effect may have on the property and its value. Property Prices are typically greater because of them being unspoilt. However many of them are falling into have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

RICS surveyors are expected inform you whether the location is/might be so designated and Section I of your Waddington Homebuyer Report will suggest additional enquiries are carried out by the conveyancing solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments to the property may also be noted, however these should be concern for the solicitor.
