Home Buyers Survey in Aldermanbury

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Aldermanbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Aldermanbury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Aldermanbury property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact should wet weather have on our new property in Aldermanbury? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact wet weather can have on buildings in Aldermanbury is overlooked by house purchasers. If you have only seen the new home in good weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. This can lead to water damage.

Whether buying in Aldermanbury or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix.

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property built Wooton stone. What should we look in to?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of Aldermanbury homes. Defects affecting stone-built Aldermanbury homes can vary, algae being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Aldermanbury homes, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there could be brown asbestos Artex affecting the home. What is asbestos and is it dangerous?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials such as stove insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic tiles.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to displace asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. They will note suspected asbestos and should offer advice.
