HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Ellesmere and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Ellesmere property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Ellesmere property's state of repair and it includes 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. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a noxious material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in shed roofs. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Ellesmere survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Traditionally built property

What should we think about when buying older property in Ellesmere? Will the property's age be an issue?

Many buyers hope to own a house with personality, like a Tudor home. A property's age, however, can sometimes be an issue. Houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to repair. You should be aware that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. This may mean expensive ongoing repairs. Mention this to your building surveyor for further advice.

Damaged Render

What will a Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco coated house in Ellesmere.

Stucco is really just a form of solid render. Commonly it is layered over brick that sets to a smooth and even finish. The effect is very appealing and is found on Victorian and Regency properties. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to plant fibres to stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Ellesmere sometimes highlight issues e.g. trapped moisture leading to the surface falling away

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include when the render has been taken down to ground level bypassing the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Fixing problems can be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.
