HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Chalfont St Peter and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Chalfont St Peter property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chalfont St Peter property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Chalfont St Peter House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos lagging situated in the maisonette. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous substance of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials for example boiler cupboard.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in boards around windows. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to break it and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos during a Chalfont St Peter building survey. Surveyors will report on possible asbestos and will offer advice.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Chalfont St Peter , and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we investigate during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors. A large number of properties could feature roofing problems, such as. From clay tiles to valley gutters, the roof structure as a whole will be considered. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Chalfont St Peter, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the surveyors will look for a range of signs, including a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Contact Day D S of 15 The Willows, Mill End, Rickmansworth, WD3 8YY on 01923 770993 for more information.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would need to be wary of when buying a period property in Chalfont St Peter in a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Chalfont St Peter need to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local factors and the relation may have with the home. The price of property will be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to conservation areas being unspoilt. However many areas have fallen into shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors will note if the planned purchase is or might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Chalfont St Peter Homebuyer Report will recommend suitable questions are conducted by your solicitor. Unapproved developments that do not have Local Authority approval may be commented on but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Davis-Law Associates are a local firm situated at Bishops House, Chiltern, Buckinghamshire, SL9 9HE might be happy help you with further information. Tel: 01753 888 776
