Home Buyers Survey in Hainault

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hainault and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Hainault property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out substantial modifications on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Hainault property's condition as well as including advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor warned us that access to the house's roof could be something to worry about, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What will our surveyor in Hainault check when the house is surveyed?

This is frequently addressed by RICS surveyors. A large number of properties can be blighted by roofing problems, such as. From eaves to ceiling joists, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. Your RICS surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Hainault, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist in Hainault.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 17th Century barn conversion. What impact will the residence's architecture have on upkeep?

Many buyers hope to own a home with character. For traditionally-built Hainault property, age, however, can worry purchasers. Hainault homes constructed with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Especially for Grade I listed property, Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, may be required.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos cement being found in the building. What is asbestos and does the Hainault HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Asbestos is a harmful silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example soffit boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in duct connectors for example. Technically all forms including white are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to move asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Hainault home survey. Your Hainault surveyor should report on possible asbestos and will offer advice.
