Home Buyers Survey in Pentonville

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Pentonville and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Pentonville property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications on the Pentonville property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Pentonville property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Pentonville built with stone generate high upkeep costs for the owner? Are there specific potential issues to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Broadway Dark Cream Limestone to Naylor Hill Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Defects affecting stone-built Pentonville homes can vary, cracks being relatively common. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing of loose or crumbling mortar. Purchasers renovating Pentonville homes should be aware that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos pipe lagging insulation at the home. What are the issues with asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials such as powdery sprayed on coatings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in soffit boards. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Pentonville home survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and should advise accordingly.
