About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Botany Bay

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Botany Bay and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Botany Bay property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Botany Bay property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there may be asbestos ceiling material concealed in the property. What is asbestos and can it be remedied?

Asbestos is a noxious substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example textured coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in water tanks. Technically all forms are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to displace the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a Botany Bay survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos and should offer advice.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect could wet weather have on a Botany Bay house, and does our surveyor mention it? Also, if there are issues, will they be a hassle to fix?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact heavy rainfall can have on properties is usually overlooked by home buyers. One indication that drainage systems are a cause for concern is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. This could then result in fungi or mould which can be a health risk.

Whether buying in Botany Bay or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. If not cleared out regularly, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
