HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in West Moors and which is cheaper?

If the West Moors property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is asbestos in some walls at the home. What is asbestos, are there any risks, can it be handled easily and Should I be concerned?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials including pipe insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in paper lining for example.

All forms including white are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to move the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Stone block wall damage

Will a West Moors house with stone walls create issues? Are there specific potential issues to bear in mind?

From Stanton Moor Sandstone to Stainton Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Problems which impact stone-built West Moors property can vary greatly, with issues like deteriorating bedding being quote 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. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, granite is more water resistant that most other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted a gap below the skirting board in the basement when we last viewed the apartment. What subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor look into?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes experience minor cracking which will not affect the building's structure. A builder should return to a new home after six months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Subsidence can be difficult to diagnose, due to the fact that the usual signs could easily be as the result of several factors. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which then rots or breaks down, can also destabilise parts of the property's foundations. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

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 serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.
