HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Wolston and which one would be the cheapest?

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be loose blue asbestos containing roof tiles at the flat. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in insulating board.

All forms (including white) are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to remove it. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Wolston survey. Your surveyor will report on potential asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco coated regency home in Wolston.

Stucco is a form of render. Commonly it is layered over brick hardens to a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly attractive and is was often applied to Victorian properties. it can be problematic and Wolston Homebuyer Reports frequently report issues e.g. lateral visible cracking revealing the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when water beneath flashings which results in large areas of detachment requiring raking back and reapplying. Re-coating Stucco problems can be difficult as the skills are getting rarer.

Stone block wall damage

Can properties built with stone cause problems for purchasers? Are there any related issues that need to be investigated, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

From Stanton Moor Sandstone to Stainton Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like cracks will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. Deterioration of lime mortar can often be the cause of a wall's failure and collapse. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. Purchasers renovating homes in Wolston should be aware that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. To source stone quarried in Wolston, you can contact local suppliers.
