HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in East Sheen and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the East Sheen property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the East Sheen property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

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

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as Fuse box. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in flooring materials.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to remove asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. They will report on possible asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home constructed Hopton Wood stone. Are there specific related issues to consider?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including algae. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Building Surveys on houses

Should we commission a full structural survey when investing in a substantially modified Edwardian bungalow in East Sheen as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Commonly described as a Full Structural Survey, it is no longer offered and this most technical survey has been superseded by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. Choose the Building Survey for this house. The HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if buying a mid 20th century of later East Sheen house of standard building materials.
