Home Buyers Survey in St Johns Wood

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in St Johns Wood and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the St Johns Wood property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the St Johns Wood property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us at our old property. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What does the building surveyor in St Johns Wood investigate as part of the survey?

Homes in St Johns Wood in otherwise fine condition could feature roofing problems. From the fascias to the parapet walls, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

Repairs to a dilapidated roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor with professional accreditation can provide a quote.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be asbestos walls being found in the home. What is asbestos and is it dangerous?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example ceiling boards.

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

All forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to move it. Professional advice must be taken without delay.

St Johns Wood Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a St Johns Wood HomeBuyer report. However, surveyors will mention potential asbestos and should suggest further investigation.
