About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Gaydon

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Gaydon and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Gaydon property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, you should you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Gaydon property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be a danger of asbestos pipe lagging concealed in the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern, will this be a hazard and does the Gaydon building survey report on it?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceiling material.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move it and professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Gaydon Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Gaydon house. What potential issues must we watch out for? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Totternhoe Limestone to Portland Cap Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
