HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Carterton and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Carterton property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you comprehensive details of the Carterton property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos cement being found in the building. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including Fuse box.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in flooring materials.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to remove it and expert advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will report on possible asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1860s home with stone walls. What related issues must we watch out for? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Upkeep fees for stone-built homes can be higher than for more standard , and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may also require attention. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Burford Quarry, Burford Road, Burford, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX18 3NN, quarrying Limestone, for details. Call 01993 842391 for more information.

For more details, contact a Carterton expert, such as Bekstone, Burford Rd, Brize Norton, Carterton, OX18 3NN.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a Carterton building. Do we need a house surveyor?

Pests like thrips may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Carterton. Signs may not be obvious, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to vermin can include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.
