HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Grassendale and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Grassendale property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Grassendale property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent warned us that access to the roofing could be an issue. What does a property surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Local property with no other major issues can be hiding serious roofing problems. From gables to ridge flashing, the whole roof will be taken into account. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Repairs can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable Grassendale roofing contractor.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Grassendale.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is a kind of render. Typically stucco is applied to underlying red brick to form a smooth and even finish. Stucco render is very grand in appearance and was common on some Victorian and Georgian properties. It is almost exactly the same as plaster or mortar. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors can reveal issues such as when it is faced with constant driving rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage. Other potential problems may result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under supports carrying concrete roof tiles that have absorbed water. Fixing Stucco problems can be dear as the skills are becoming rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos insulating board affecting the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern and are there any risks?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous substance. Some types may be in building materials including lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation for example.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to remove asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. On no account endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Grassendale HomeBuyer report. However they will report on possible asbestos and will offer advice.
