There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as asbestos packing in stud walls.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding qualities and it may be found in central heating flues. Technically all forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to move asbestos and expert advice should be sought immediately. Never attempt to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during the survey. However they will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend professional testing.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our property surveyor check signs of flood damage?

The lives of many homeowners in Woburn Sands and across the UK have been affected by water damage caused by flooding. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a HomeBuyer Report will inform your decision. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. Flood water can enter a residential property through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Woburn Sands area likely to affect the residential property also enables the chartered surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
