HomeBuyer Report

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Ramsbottom, what recommendations will a Ramsbottom surveyor make for a 60s house built from Flemish bond walls? Is age a factor?

Brick homes in Ramsbottom will indicate diverse problems, including frost damaged pointing and badly applied render. For instance, sulphate attack, caused by moisture interacting with sulphates in cement, and will destroy the structural integrity of the wall and should be taken very seriously. Osborne Alan may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01634 711158 or 210 Bush Rd, Cuxton, Rochester, ME2 1HF.

A range of styles and techniques of brick building have been used across the country for centuries. E.g. Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

Building Surveys on flats 1

We are buying a derelict Victorian flat property, do I need to go for a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now reclassified as the Building Survey. You should choose a Building Survey for the property described. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice for a non period unmodified home built out of conventional building materials.

Be aware that certain limitations exist with any residential survey as a RICS surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the building nor can he/she inspect no ladder available for flat roofs. Over and above house surveys, flats involve shared parts of the building which cannot always be accessed. A surveyor is only authorised investigate the actual flat, though he may provide an opinion communal parts like lifts. For more details and a breakdown of what each survey type includes visit here.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of asbestos pipe insulation situated in the property. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as soil vent pipes. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in rain water goods. Most of it was sourced from the US.

All forms (including white) are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb asbestos and professional advice should be sought immediately. Professional removal of it will probably be costly but must be conducted by experts.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during a Ramsbottom building survey. However, surveyors will note possible asbestos and should offer advice.
