HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Barkingside and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Barkingside property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension on the Barkingside property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Barkingside property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos paper lining in existence at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials for example stove insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic tiles. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. Never attempt to disturb it yourself. Barkingside Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note possible asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have read that Barkingside houses built on clay soil can experience problems. Will the Barkingside Property Survey consider this?

Factors from damp to snow can cause significant expense for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a range of issues. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including moisture changes in the soil. There may be little evidence of underlying defects, such as separation of the skirting board from the floor. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Barkingside, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the property. Patches of very wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would need to be aware of when purchasing a period property in Barkingside near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Barkingside must possess knowledge of relevant local area factors and the connection may have on the home. The price of property is usually higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of conservation areas being in their original state. However a growing number have been neglected and are in a state e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors can be expected to tell you if the planned purchase is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of the Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are raised as part of the legal process. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval should be noted, however these should be investigated by the solicitor.
