HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Upminster Bridge and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Upminster Bridge property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Upminster Bridge property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a structure in Upminster Bridge, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the roof of the structure be problematic?

Residences in Upminster Bridge with no other major issues will suffer roof maintenance problems, such as torn or punctured damp-proofing. From collar beams to eaves, every part of the roof should be investigated. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Upminster Bridge,

but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Upminster Bridge roofing contractor for the job itself.

Asbestos roof tiles

I am concerned that there is asbestos pipe lagging insulation being found in property. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including garage roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in shed roofs.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will note potential asbestos risks and will recommend relevant tests.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a flat close to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste for example: domestic waste material. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (4/5 people live within 1.5m of one!). Worries might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health concerns such as congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveys in Upminster Bridge will flag up structural issues linked to the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct conveyancing searches of the British Geological database and Havering Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
