HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Blandford Forum and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Blandford Forum property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Blandford Forum property's general condition along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be a danger of asbestos pipe lagging concealed in the property. What is asbestos, can it be treated and will the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials including roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters.

All forms (including white) are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken not to break the asbestos and professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Building Surveys on houses

What are the benefits to order a full structural survey as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report when considering a defective bungalow?

Although very often described as Full Structural Surveys by some, they are now defunct and have been renamed RICS Building Survey When buying an unusual Blandford Forum property, for example an unloved house, it is the right selection of survey. It will outline full and crucial insight in relation to the houses construction materials on top of any defects after a thorough visual inspection of any accessible parts of the house. There are certain limitations with a Building Survey because a local surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the of the Blandford Forum house e.g. moving heavy furniture. Boundary walls and fences will also be reported on.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Flemish bond upkeep suggestions - can you assist? Is age a factor?

Blandford Forum brick-walled apartments can indicate diverse problems. The RICS surveyor should report on these. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface. Contact Edwards Geo A for a repairs estimate at 0115-946 4160 or 1 Wynwood Rd, Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 6NB.

For home purchasers in Blandford Forum seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like herringbone bond, which has a distinctive L-shaped pattern. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
