HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hanwell and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hanwell property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Hanwell property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s residential property with stone walls. Are there any major defects that we should be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

From Westwood Ground Limestone to Red St.Bees Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including spalling brick affect many stone-walled Hanwell homes. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Hanwell homes, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. Deterioration of lime mortar can often be the cause of a wall's failure and collapse. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am worried that there may be asbestos pipe lagging affecting the flat. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example toilet cistern.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in textured coatings. Technically all forms (including white) are pernicious and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken never to disturb asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Hanwell Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will note the risk of asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour said that bowing had been a concern, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we do about roof repairs?

This often causes anxiety for Hanwell home buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Many residential properties will suffer damage to the roof. From wind braces to decking, every part of the roof must be reviewed. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Maintenance need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable contractor in Hanwell.
