HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Leconfield and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Leconfield property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Leconfield property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get an instant Leconfield Home Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a harmful silicate material formed from metamorphic rocks. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. soil vent pipes. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in rain water goods. Technically all forms including white are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break it and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on the risk of asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled property cause problems for residents? Are there specific defects to bear in mind? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Portland Roach Limestone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Issues including cracks affect many stone-walled property in Leconfield. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to property in Leconfield, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decoration. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor look at the safety of the gas supply?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually survey any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the home, in addition to gas related installations e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the Leconfield qualified RICS surveyor will not remove any external fittings and won't do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call an engineer without delay.
