HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Haxby and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Haxby property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Haxby property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will your Haxby Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco regency home in Haxby that I wish to buy.

Stucco is really just a form of solid render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick that dries to a smooth and attractive finish. The coating is very beautiful and was often found on Victorian and Regency homes. It is almost exactly the same as plaster or mortar in its constituency. It may have lime in it as well as plant fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Haxby commonly focus on potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other issues may result from the difficulty in testing for damp underneath. Resolving problems may be dear as the skills are getting rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am concerned that there is asbestos pipe lagging insulation being found in property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials e.g. coatings spayed on beams.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement sheet. Technically all forms (including white) are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken not to break it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. On no account endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Haxby. Is there a flood risk, and will the chartered surveyor investigate indications of flooding damage, or whether flooding has affected other houses on the street?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can all result in extensive water damage caused by flooding; sensible owners and home buyers in Haxby are right to consider precautions. It is strongly recommended that precautions are taken, before flood damage occurs. In addition, the Building Survey may recommend maintenance.The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a home lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the residents, but this information may not be accurate.
