What property survey is the correct choice for my planned property purchase ?

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Westonzoyland and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Westonzoyland property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the Westonzoyland property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Westonzoyland property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this converted apartment has deteriorated - what should we do?

Brick-constructed property in Westonzoyland feature several advantages, but they can also indicate both minor and serious issues. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is extensive damp where water has been drawn in through or between poorly fitted brickwork. Mab Brickwork may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07947 998322 or 49 Turners Meadow Way, Beckenham, BR3 4TG.

Brick-constructed property can be found across Westonzoyland, leading to a great deal of variety. One example is Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern.

If the Westonzoyland surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. Why would there be asbestos, is it dangerous, can it be remedied and What should I do?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including cement sheet.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic including tensile strength qualities and it may be found in cement.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Westonzoyland building survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos risks and should advise accordingly.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I pay slightly more for a full structural survey when carrying out due diligence on Victorian townhouse ?

Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification a couple of years ago by RICS. Plump for the Building Survey if you are considering the property described. The HomeBuyer Report is enough for a post 1950s unmodified home of standard building materials.

Be aware that one or two restrictions exist with the survey insofar as a chartered surveyor is not authorised open up the structure of the house or assess serviceability of a boiler.
