HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Kingsnorth and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Kingsnorth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Kingsnorth property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a house in Kingsnorth. What advice should we get?

Pests like cockroaches may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Kingsnorth.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, woodworm, or larvae of the common furniture beetle, may be identified after finding neat small holes in wood, accompanied by piles of wood dust beneath. Remedies to a serious infestation can include destruction of tainted materials. If you believe cockroaches, or any pest, may be present, request that your property surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including acoustic ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in patching compounds for example. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Finding asbestos does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken not to move the asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay. You should never attempt to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note the risk of asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? What subsidence issues will the house survey reveal?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. The builder will likely return to a new house within a few months in order to repair settlement damage.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. Organic material such as peat is usually stable if kept moist by the water level, but if the soil dries, this organic matter will decompose. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.
