HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Bulkington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Bulkington property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bulkington property's state of repair as well as advice on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is concern white asbestos ceiling material in existence at the flat. What is asbestos and what are the remedial options?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation.

All forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove it and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will note potential asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Bulkington. What recommendations will a property surveyor in Bulkington make? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-built property feature several advantages, but they will also indicate numerous defects, ranging from horizontal cracking to crypto-florescence. For instance, sulphate attack. This results if a cement mortared-wall suffers a prolonged period of damp. It is effectively impossible to treat and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Holmesdale at 46 Edinburgh Cr, Waltham Cross, EN8 7QZ on 01992 639270.

A selection of different courses and brick making techniques of brick building feature in construction throughout Bulkington. For example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What negative impact does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Does the Bulkington HomeBuyer Report cover this?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Specific issues include consolidation, or the change in volume of soil resulting from water loss. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as sticking doors. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Bulkington, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. 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.
