Home Buyers Survey in Surrey

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Surrey and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Surrey property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Surrey property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Surrey property with a loft conversion, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does the home surveyor check when the property is surveyed?

Residential property in Surrey with no other major issues can be hiding serious roofing problems, such as. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to dormers. Factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing contractor in Surrey. Call A Mason & Sons Roofing Ltd of 145 Brighton Rd, Redhill, RH1 6PS on 01737 769888 for an estimate.

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be asbestos coatings spayed on beams in existence at the house. Why would there be asbestos and can it be handled easily?

Buildings built earlier than the mid eighties will most likely include any number of materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a dangerous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including artex.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in the home appliances. The main origins of asbestos were Canada. Technically all forms including white are pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a single fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful however, not to disturb the asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently. Professional removal of it is expensive must always be carried out by professionals. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However they will report on possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.
