About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Castelnau

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Castelnau and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Castelnau property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will give an in-depth analysis of the Castelnau property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor examine on a stucco coated regency home in Castelnau.

Stucco is a kind of smooth render. Usually stucco is applied to brick that dries to a smooth flat finish. The finish is very attractive and is was often applied to Victorian properties. Stucco is often problematic and Castelnau Homebuyer Reports frequently show potentially expensive to remedy problems e.g. moisture trapped beneath paint coatings which cannot escape. Other potential problems may be when dampness beneath flashings which causes large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is flaky white asbestos wall panelling present in the flat. What is asbestos, is there a danger and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials such as ironing boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire blankets. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Castelnau home survey. Your Castelnau surveyor should report on possible asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
