Home Buyers Survey in Talbot Green

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Talbot Green and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Talbot Green property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension on the Talbot Green property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Talbot Green property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be signs of asbestos textured coatings situated in the building. What is asbestos, is there a danger and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. garage roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in shed roofs. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to displace it and expert advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Roof defects identified during a survey

One of the neighbours said that damage to the parapet had been a concern, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Which issues relating to the roofing will be looked into?

Homes in Talbot Green with no other major issues could unfortunately be experiencing roofing problems, such as. Every element should be checked, e.g. sheeting. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like a complete replacement, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A Talbot Green roofing specialist with a good reference can provide a quote.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be pests at the property in Talbot Green we're buying, but we are not certain. Is a Property Survey advisable?

Talbot Green properties are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to pest problems can include chemical treatment and removal or excision of affected timber. If you believe rats, or any pest, may be present, request that your surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
