HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Werrington and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Werrington property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Werrington property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice get a Werrington Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the home we are meaning to lease it looked like there could be corrosion of the wiring. Does a the surveyor advise electrical defects?

When preparing a Home Survey in Werrington a surveyor will usually remark on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. He or she is expected to focus on concerns such as reporting on the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms. Looking at any documents from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

Confirming the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend that an electrical check be conducted at least every 10 years (or every 5 if letting). For expert help on domestic electrical systems - Hometec , 13 Wycliffe Grove, Peterborough, PE4 5DE .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is asbestos in some walls at the home. What is asbestos and is it dangerous?

Asbestos was not completely banned until the late nineties so homes built before that may have traces of asbestos. Asbestos is a harmful fibrous substance of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials for example duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in insulating board. It is mainly found in South Africa. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre is not fatal.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to disturb it and professional advice must be taken immediately. Getting rid of asbestos can be dear and must always be completed by trained experts. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. They will report on suspected asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Werrington. Is there any English Garden Wall bond upkeep guidance we should be aware of??

Brick Werrington property will experience a number of issues, including DPC failure and crumbling mortar. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with feedback. One problem often found is wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall. A local builder should be able to assist. Call J C Design & Building Services, 12 Staines Rd, Feltham, TW14 0HD on 020 8890 5093 for a quote for repair work.

For example, stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales. The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
