HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Fillongley and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Fillongley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Fillongley property's condition as well as including information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A builder mentioned subsidence may be a concern impacting the flat. How could this affect the property, and what can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Generally, subsidence can be set right. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed water builds up in the soil, which may result in the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. For example, water leaking from a damaged drains will clear away soil which supports the structure. This reduces the volume of the subsoil, allowing the weight of the property to distort the supporting ground. Inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Building Surveys on houses

What is the reason for getting a full structural survey when investing in a shabby semi detached bungalow in Fillongley as opposed to a HomeBuyer Report?

Regularly, and incorrectly, referred to as a Full Structural Survey by some, this survey is no longer available has actually been given a new title by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. If you are purchasing an unusual property like a period Fillongley house, it is the best survey to go for. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a post 1950s unmodified Fillongley home assembled from conventional building materials. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of any accessible parts of the house, a written report is supplied to the client going through thorough and important details in relation to the state of repair of the house. There will be one or two restrictions with any survey to bear in mind as a local surveyor will not be able to force or open up the fabric of the Fillongley property such as lifting up fitted carpets.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos walls situated in the property. What is asbestos and how is it remedied?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. painted over ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in lagging.

All forms are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, on no account to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and will offer advice.
