About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Burwash

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Burwash and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Burwash property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Burwash property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be asbestos boards around radiators concealed in the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example stove insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic tiles.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a solitary fibre is not deadly.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace it and professional advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of it will probably be expensive but must be completed by trained experts. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos and will advise accordingly.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Burwash surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

The Homebuyer Report contains a surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as part of the report. When calculating the correct valuation your RICS valuer will relate to knowledge of Burwash and other things relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms. The surveyor will also consider construction type and use other assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like the property being underneath a flight path, which will also be factored in.

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered regency house in Burwash that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact just a type of render. Usually it is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth stone like surface. The effect is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian buildings. It is similar to any other render. Sometimes it can have lime in it in addition to plant fibres to help stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Burwash Building Surveys sometimes reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems such as trapped moisture culminating in the surface breaking. Other potential problems may be when the stucco has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving problems with stucco may be difficult as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.
