About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Burnt Oak

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Burnt Oak and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Burnt Oak property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Burnt Oak property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types are found in the building materials such as water tanks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sprayed on coatings. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to break asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However they will mention potential asbestos risks and should recommend professional testing.

Landfill site near home

What should I be fearful of when buying a house proximate to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous waste material. No one wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include complex organic chemicals. Health issues such as cancer have been linked to landfill sites .
