HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in West Wittering and which would be cheaper?

Damaged Render

What will the West Wittering Surveyor look for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in West Wittering.

Stucco is actually a form of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick that dries to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. Stucco render is very aesthetic and is common on some Victorian and Georgian buildings. Stucco is often problematic and West Wittering surveyors commonly reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance horizontal hairline cracking that describes the mortar lines between the brick

Another example of problems can possibly result be when moisture below windows which causes detachment. Re-coating Stucco problems may be dear as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be powdery white asbestos duct connectors situated in the home. What is asbestos and will the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in shed roofs. Technically all forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
