Home Buyers Survey in Hertford

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Hertford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

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

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Hertford property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Hertford. What directions can a surveyor in Hertford offer? Does brick decay faster in Hertford weather?

Brick-built homes do benefit from many advantages, but they will also indicate several common problems, such as horizontal cracking. Where relevant, these will be discussed in the survey report, with solutions or likely results if they are not resolved.

A defect often found is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. Smith Steve should be able to provide an estimate for repair work. Contact them at 5 Woburn Rd, Croydon, CR0 2AB or 020 8686 3363.

Brick-build property may be found throughout England and Wales, leading to a great deal of variety, both in appearance and manufacture, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be asbestos walls being found in the home. What is asbestos and does the Hertford home survey report on it?

Asbestos is a noxious silicate material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials such as cement. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceilings.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not fatal.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to displace asbestos and expert advice must be taken urgently. Getting rid of asbestos will likely be costly but absolutely must be completed by trained experts.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Hertford home survey. They will note possible asbestos and will inform you of the options.
