Home Buyers Survey in Frodsham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Frodsham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Frodsham property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Frodsham property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about when purchasing a house near to Frodsham Marsh Lagoons near Off Brook Furlong and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill take many forms including hazardous waste. Thousands of sites affect hundreds of thousands of people throughout the UK including Frodsham. Concerns include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane. Potential health issues such as spina bifida have been associated to landfill sites .

Frodsham surveyors will examine any structural defects linked to the site. Your legal representative will commission environmental searches of the British Geological database and Cheshire West and Chester Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Frodsham is worth checking. What can be done to fix subsidence if subsidence is found during the property survey?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. A builder should return to a new home after some months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Cracks are a plain suggestion of subsidence, although they could be easily repaired and of little concern. Organic material in the sub-soil can also create issues. A high water table will ensure that organic materials in the soil, such as peat, do not decompose but if the soil dries, this organic matter will begin to rot and become unstable. This causes the volume of soil to reduce so that foundations can crush the subsoil.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. In some more serious situations, underpinning may be necessary. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, when it comes to tree removal.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is asbestos in some walls at the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation for example.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to break asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately. On no account endeavour to disturb it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk. Frodsham Surveyors will not test for asbestos during the survey. Your surveyor will report on potential asbestos risks and should recommend relevant tests.
