About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Heacham

HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Heacham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Heacham property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rainfall have on a building? We're concerned about replacement costs.

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the effect which rain has on a residence is not given the attention it deserves by purchasers. For example, damp stains around drainage strongly suggest that the gutters are at risk. Poor drainage can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

Fortunately, problems with drains are usually easy to repair. If not cared for, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there is a risk of blue asbestos fire doors present in house. What is asbestos and can it be easily removed?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. rain water goods.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in gutters.

All forms are deadly and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to displace it and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your Heacham surveyor should note the risk of asbestos and should inform you of the options.
