Home Buyers Survey in Chesham Bois

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Chesham Bois and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Chesham Bois property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Chesham Bois property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is it a good idea to check drainage? Will the Chesham Bois building survey report on this? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact rain can have on a structure is usually overlooked. As an example, spalling masonry can often mean that the drainage systems are damaged, and may lead to staining of wallpaper and damp. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix if dealt with quickly. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated traces of blue asbestos may be lurking boiler cupboard at the property. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials including fire blankets.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in walls. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to breathing in a one fibre will not kill you.

If found, care should be taken never to break asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. Removing it may be costly but absolutely must be completed by trained experts. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos during the survey and will suggest experts are consulted.

Conservation area

Are there any things we should consider if planning to buy a period property in Chesham Bois near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local councils. Your surveyor need to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area factors and any connection may have on the property and its value. The value of homes tends to be significantly higher owing to the areas retaining original features.
