HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Stamford Bridge and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Stamford Bridge property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Stamford Bridge property's state of repair along with advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours said that pooling water on the roof had been a concern - What advice would the Stamford Bridge house surveyor give in their report?

Property in and around Stamford Bridge that are otherwise ideal can still be subject to roofing problems, such as. From roof battens to purlins, the whole roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The maintenance of a roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you

will be facing. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when purchasing a property close to a refuse landfill site

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste e.g. commercial rubbish. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns like gut problems have been linked to landfill sites .

Building Surveys and valuations in Stamford Bridge will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Kensington and Chelsea Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a possibility of asbestos wallpaper present in property. What is asbestos, are there any risks and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in sealant.

All forms including white are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your Stamford Bridge surveyor should note suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.
