HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Burnt Oak and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Burnt Oak property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Burnt Oak property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor check out the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the meter is in an escape route as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated fittings, for instance prefabricated flues. Your Burnt Oak RICS chartered surveyor won't remove external fittings and won't run any tests whatsoever on the system. Gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types are found in the building materials such as water tanks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However they will mention potential asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. What should we expect a Burnt Oak House Survey to include, and what defects will be reported on?

There are several common problems associated with clay soil. Specific problems include movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. Drought, for instance, can have a significant shrinking effect on clay soil, putting pressure on the building's structure and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. Visible results may be anything from separation of the skirting board from the floor to sticking doors. A Burnt Oak surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
