HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Bilborough and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

If the Bilborough property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Bilborough property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Bilborough? Could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that the impact high levels of rainfall can have on Bilborough homes is overlooked by purchasers. Signs that downspouts are worth a closer look include a waterlogged garden. Blocked rainwater goods can result in rising damp.

Luckily, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously. If disregarded, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos insulating board concealed in the maisonette. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos was not completely banned until the late nineties and property constructed prior to that date may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a pernicious material. Some types may be in building materials e.g. acoustic ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in patching compounds. Most asbestos was imported from the US.

All forms including Chrysotile are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not deadly.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace it and professional advice must be taken without delay. Getting rid of asbestos can be dear but must be completed by experts. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. Your Bilborough surveyor should note potential asbestos and should offer advice.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing an older farmhouse in Bilborough. What should be budgeted for repairs?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can create issues for homeowners. Structures featuring traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to repair. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may also need to be sourced. This can result in longer-term maintenance obligations.
