HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Frimley and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Frimley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Frimley property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any potential pitfalls we would need to consider if planning to buy a flat in Frimley in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Your surveyor must have knowledge of relevant local area issues and the bearing may have with the property. Prices is usually higher because of conservation areas being preserved. However many of them are falling into have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. the unsightly effect of billboard advertising

Surveyors are expected report if the house could be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Unauthorised developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be advised but these are really more a concern for the lawyer.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We spotted cracks along one external wall, is this subsidence? Is this a severe risk, and what subsidence-related defects will my property survey investigate?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be put right. In contrast to subsidence, $heave$ can occur when a tree has been removed moisture builds up in the soil, causing the soil to swell, forcing the foundations above upwards, and can be as destructive as subsidence.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. One such issue is that soil on ground on an incline is not as stable as that flat ground. In very wet or flooded conditions, the soil layer may become unstable and begin to slide downward. Signs of potential subsidence include doors and windows which stick.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Beech and sycamore trees, for example, should be planted at least 15m from a property. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a concern of an asbestos fireplace in existence at the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially fatal fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including acoustic ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in patching compounds. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken not to disturb asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay. You should never endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Frimley HomeBuyer report. However they will mention the risk of asbestos and should inform you of the options.
