Home Buyers Survey in Thornbury

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Thornbury and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Thornbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Thornbury property's state of repair as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated traces of blue asbestos may be lurking boiler cupboard at the property. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any risks and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to break it and expert advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during a Thornbury building survey. Surveyors will report on potential asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled converted barn. What should we look in to?

Purchasers in Thornbury should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like cracks will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties in Thornbury, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes use of traditional methods to maintain older walls. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Wickwar Quarry, Downs Road, Wickwar, Wotton-Under-Edge, Gloucestershire, GL12 8LF for details. Call 01454 294521 for more information.
