HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Wragby and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Wragby property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make major works, you should you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Wragby property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour mentioned that the had been issues with damp. What will our property surveyor in Wragby investigate as part of the survey?

Local property that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious roof maintenance problems. From parapet walls to sheathing, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a poor asphalt covering.

Maintenance can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange.

Damaged Render

What problems will my RICS Surveyor be looking for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) house in Wragby that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is just a form of render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick hardens to a smooth and attractive finish. The effect is very attractive and is found on Georgian homes. It is very like plaster. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Wragby frequently report any number of problems such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues might result from the heavy loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Fixing problems with stucco may be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials such as fire doors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance properties, it may be found in duct connectors.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb it and expert advice should be sought immediately. You should never try to handle it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos during the Wragby survey and should suggest experts are consulted.
