External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What recommendations will you make for a property with handmade bricks? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed apartments do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also be subject to diverse problems, from frost damage to spalling. For example, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and may require immediate attention. Cleaver Jeff should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 15a Egerton Rd, Hale, Altrincham, WA15 8EE or 0161-903 8100.

Bexleyheath home purchasers may need to consider that good selection of methods and styles are found in many homes built in this country. One example is stretcher bond, the most ubiquitous across England and Wales. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there is a concern of asbestos roof tiles affecting the property. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to break asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Bexleyheath building survey. Surveyors will report on possible asbestos and will advise accordingly.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and what does it include?

Homebuyer Reports include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost. To fully consider an accurate value estimate your independent surveyor will factor in awareness of the Bexleyheath property market and other considerations relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Your Bexleyheath surveyor will also consider construction type and will make certain key assumptions such as no contamination in or from ground. Surveyors will ignore things like sales incentives.

Further area conjectures, like service connections, are made in addition to Bexleyheath environmental issues like nearby pubs, which will also be factored in. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
