HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Spalding and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Spalding property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Spalding property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of blue asbestos textured coatings in the apartment. Is this a major concern?

Asbestos is a pernicious material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials such as cement sheet.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken however, not to move it and expert advice should be sought immediately. Never endeavour to handle it yourself. Spalding Surveyors will not test for asbestos during the survey. However,

surveyors will note potential asbestos during the Spalding survey and should advise accordingly.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor take into account on a spar dash rendered (stucco) house in Spalding.

Stucco is actually a kind of smooth solid render. Typically stucco is applied to underlying brick hardens to a very smooth surface. The effect is highly aesthetic and is was often applied to Georgian properties. It is very like plaster. it can be problematic and Spalding surveyors commonly focus on any number of problems for example, when it is exposed to constant driving rain which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the pressure from heavy loads above such as cracking under the eaves. Remedying problems may be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting harder to find.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to look out for when buying a building constructed in 1740? Will the age of the house be an issue?

Many buyers have considered buying property with real personality. For houses in Spalding built before the 20th Century, age, however, can concern buyers. Spalding structures showcasing traditional methods can be costly to upkeep. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, , which could make obtaining a full structural or building survey essential.

Built in the 15th century, White Hart Hotel, 19 Market Place in Spalding is a fine example of a Medieval-period urban house.
