HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Newton Longville and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Newton Longville property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works on the Newton Longville property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Newton Longville property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a concern of an asbestos fireplace in existence at the flat. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral of several naturally occurring materials. Some types are found in the building materials including garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in shed roofs. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately deadly and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to displace asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. You should never attempt to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note the risk of asbestos during the survey and will advise accordingly.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Newton Longville, what suggestions can a Newton Longville surveyor make for a property built from Flemish bond walls? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-built Newton Longville houses feature several advantages. Unfortunately, they also be subject to several common problems. For example, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and may require immediate attention. Belfry Construction Services Ltd may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Kestrel Ho/Primett Rd, Stevenage, SG1 3EE or 01438 355060.

For home purchasers in Newton Longville seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like sailor bond is a decorative bond featuring vertically oriented bricks with their widest faces parallel to the wall.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a renovated farmhouse in Newton Longville. Will the building's age be a problem?

Some buyers hope to own a home with character, such as a coach house or converted stable. Older construction methods and materials, however, can worry purchasers. Homes employing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials.

Mixed from clay and straw, wychert gives many old buildings in the county their distinctive white appearance. Many parts of Buckinghamshire, including near Newton Longville, display examples of wychert building. As an example of Medieval building, Westbrook End, Ivy Lodge in Newton Longville was constructed in around 1454.
