HomeBuyer Report

If the Silvertown property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Silvertown property's condition and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be asbestos walls being found in the home. What is asbestos and can it be easily dealt with?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. paper lining. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in painted over ceilings for example.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Silvertown HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

What impact does clay soil have on a home's foundations? Will my Silvertown Property Survey look into this?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a home can be significant. Defects can be obvious to the naked eye, or may remain undiscovered (and therefore untreated) for years. Visible results may be anything from cracks along the bedroom wall to a difficult-to-open bedroom window. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Silvertown, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the home. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
