HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in West Smithfield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the West Smithfield property's condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a flat proximate to a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: inert waste material. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include chemicals like dioxins. Health concerns like spina bifida have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors will examine structural defects resulting from the site. Your lawyer will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark databases and City of London Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos ceiling boards present in building. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. home appliances. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in cooker insulation.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb it. Professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos and will advise accordingly.
