HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Wolstanton and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Wolstanton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Wolstanton property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos walls situated in the property. What is asbestos and can it be remedied?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials including ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceiling material.

All forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, not to displace asbestos and expert advice must be

taken urgently. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Wolstanton HomeBuyer report. However, surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need English Garden Wall bond repair tips, can a surveyor in Wolstanton help?

Brick-built property demonstrate several benefits, but they will also experience distinct issues, including crypto-florescence and cracks. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Contact A V Brickwork for a repairs estimate at 01306 631086 or 2 Northlands/Winfield Gr, Newdigate, Dorking, RH5 5AY.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows, to the rare, such basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.
