HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Peterston Super Ely and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Peterston Super Ely property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Peterston Super Ely property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Peterston Super Ely home built in the late 40s, but it has clay foundations. Does a Peterston Super Ely Property Survey discuss soil composition the report?

Whether a house was built in 1704 or 2004, factors as varied as weather or mould can create issues for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in numerous issues. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Visible results may be anything from minor wall cracks in the bathroom to a sticking door in the bathroom. There is a real benefit in booking a Peterston Super Ely surveyor to carry out your House Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. If soil moisture

levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a risk of asbestos flooring materials in existence at the apartment. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous structured mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including ceiling boards. 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 boilers. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken however, not to break asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will mention possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing a 16th Century gatehouse in Peterston Super Ely. What consequences will the house's age have on maintenance?

Many purchasers would like to own a home with character. Use of traditional methods, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Properties showcasing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Materials suitable for the work may be required. If you are uncertain, speak to the building surveyor for more detail.
