Roof defects identified during a survey

A leaky roof has created issues for us in the past - What advice would the Walton on the Naze house surveyor give in their report?

Property in and around Walton on the Naze in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer damage to the roof. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the rafters to the ceiling joists. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Walton on the Naze, but it is a health and safety necessity. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.

Building Surveys on apartments

Should I opt for a full structural survey prior to purchasing a poor condition period mansion apartment close to Walton on the Naze?

The Building Survey is the new name for the Structural Survey following its reclassification a while ago by RICS. You should choose a Building Survey for the apartment you are thinking of buying. The HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail for a post fifties unmodified Walton on the Naze home made out of conventional construction materials.

There are certain limitations are integral with any residential survey as a qualified surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the Walton on the Naze apartment of comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated traces of blue asbestos may be lurking boiler cupboard at the property. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and will the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately potentially fatal and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to remove the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. On no account attempt to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your Walton on the Naze surveyor should note the risk of asbestos during the Walton on the Naze survey and should offer advice.
