HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Holmrook and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Holmrook property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Holmrook property's general condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Holmrook House Survey Quote online or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of asbestos wallpaper present in the flat. Should we be concerned?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. insulating board.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in coatings spayed on beams.

All forms including white are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, on no account to move asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately. Never endeavour to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your Holmrook surveyor should mention potential asbestos risks and should suggest experts are consulted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

A next-door neighbour warned us about pests affecting some homes - What advice should we get?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, infestations can impact a home's worth and put your health in danger. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to a serious infestation can include insecticides. If you strongly suspect an issue with rats, or any pest, speak to your Holmrook surveyor

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Holmrook building with a loft conversion. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by chartered surveyors. A large number of properties could feature cracked and loose slates or tiles, among a range of other roofing issues. Every element should be checked, e.g. decking. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.
