HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Mayfair and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Mayfair property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Mayfair property's general condition as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos insulating board affecting the house. What is asbestos and is there a danger?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. shed roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in soil vent pipes. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken

if asbestos is discovered never to displace asbestos and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note potential asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property but are worried about bugs - How do we investigate further?

Property purchasers in Mayfair should be aware that there is no legal obligation for a seller to report on an infestation.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Remedies to a serious infestation can include removal or excision of affected timber. Speak to a pest control specialist, such as Direct Pest Solutions Ltd, 99 Park Lane, London, W1K 7TU on 0207 060 4079, to discuss remedies.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 17th Century cottage in Mayfair. Will the age of the property be a problem?
