HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Raynes Park and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Raynes Park property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Raynes Park property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get Sussex bond repair tips for the property in Raynes Park we are purchasing?

Brick-walled conversions in Raynes Park can show signs of distinct issues. These can include weathering or sulphate attack. For example, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and may require immediate attention.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Ruby Construction at 78 George St, Stockton, Southam, CV47 8JT on 01926 815237.

For buyers interested in less common uses of brick, consider diapering' (using contrast and varied colours of bricks to enliven a plain surface). Consider renegotiating the price of the Raynes Park property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is some brown asbestos sealant concealed in the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example fireplace.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire doors.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered however, not to move it. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos during the Raynes Park survey and should recommend relevant tests.

Stone block wall damage

Will a home in Raynes Park with stone walls cause problems? What matters must we watch out for?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Raynes Park property. Defects such as delamination affect many stone-walled Raynes Park property. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Raynes Park property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may also require attention. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like monitoring of natural wear, watching for signs of sudden or severe change.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, speak to a Raynes Park specialist. Original Grate Expectations Ltd, Station Buildings, Wimbledon Chase Station, Kingston Rd, London, SW20 8JT (Tel: 020 8540 8387), for example, could assist.
