About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Grassendale

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Grassendale and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Grassendale property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Grassendale property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it worth paying more for a full structural survey when buying an apartment in Grassendale?

The Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its renaming some time ago by the RICS. It is now the most appropriate RICS survey when planning to buy an unconventional home, for example an unloved apartment in Grassendale. A Building Survey summarises thorough and far-reaching details in relation to the property's standard of construction and repair as well as any needs for future maintenance, following a thorough inspection of the accessible areas of the house.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos insulating board affecting the house. Which types of asbestos are a concern and are there any risks?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous substance. Some types may be in building materials including lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation for example.

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

If discovered, one must be careful never to remove asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. On no account endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Grassendale HomeBuyer report. However they will report on possible asbestos and will offer advice.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties generate high upkeep costs for owners? What factors should we be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Britain's geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Stanton Moor Sandstone. Problems which impact stone-built Grassendale property can vary greatly, with issues like salt contamination of being quote common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to Grassendale property, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for elements such as the junctions of external walls. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. If you are planning to renovate, consider that the British Geological Survey's GeoReport includes a stone matching service. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
