HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Leamington Spa and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Leamington Spa property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Leamington Spa property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw cracks down the gable wall, is this subsidence? What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Movement of the foundations of a home is called subsidence. In general, homes are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates. Many properties develop superficial cracks in a floor surface, due to settlement, changes in temperature and humidity. Signs of potential subsidence include rippling wallpaper that isn't caused by dampness.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt

any further movement. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials including asbestos blocks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. You should not endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Leamington Spa building survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a building next to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous rubbish disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (80% of people live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns include heavy metals. Potential health problems for example cancer have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will note structural issues linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will carry out environmental searches of the Landmark database and Warwick Local Authority and advise you .
