HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Moorends and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Moorends property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make any alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Moorends property's condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent mentioned that the had been issues with rotten beams - What does the surveyor investigate during the survey?

This is often asked by buyers in Moorends who know that homes can still be subject to roof maintenance problems. From purlins to tie beams, every part of the roof should be reported on, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like asbestos cement removal, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A builder can provide an estimate.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be painted over, but loose asbestos situated in the apartment. Should we be worried?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials such as duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging insulation.

All forms are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful however, never to remove the asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos as part of the survey. Surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos during the Moorends survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Moorends. Is there any Scottish bond guidelines for upkeep we should be aware of??

Brick-walled homes in Moorends can suffer from both minor and serious issues, such as spalling. For instance, diagonal cracking caused by ground movement and should be taken very seriously.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. M G L Building Services at 26 Riley Road, Tilehurst, Reading, RG30 4UX on 0118-942 8178.

Moorends home purchasers may need to consider that range of courses arrangements and colours have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. For example, running, or stretcher, bond. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.
