Home Buyers Survey in Brislington

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Brislington and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Brislington property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Brislington property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Brislington, what warnings would the surveyor give for a 30s home built from Fletton brick?

Brislington buildings with brick walls can show signs of both minor and serious issues. For example, patchwork cracks caused by tie failure. This cracking may only be visible internally, and is accompanied by an irregular wall surface and may require immediate attention. McHugh P S may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 6 Symonds, Freshbrook, Swindon, SN5 8QL or 01793 521300.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornate Della Robbia bond paving. Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is flaky white asbestos insulation in the property. What is asbestos and will the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials including pipe lagging insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging.

All forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove it. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos during the survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.
