Home Buyers Survey in Hurlingham

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Hurlingham and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Hurlingham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Hurlingham property's condition along with information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Hurlingham. What does the surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Local property that are otherwise ideal could unfortunately be experiencing damage to the roof, including. From parapet walls to purlins, the roof structure as a whole should be reported on, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A quote for the work could be sought from a reliable roofing specialist in Hurlingham.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Hurlingham property. Are there any major problems that we should be aware of?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Monks Park Limestone to Westwood Ground Limestone. Issues including penetrating damp affect many stone-walled Hurlingham buildings. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Hurlingham are regular and irregular.

Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Maintenance tips include repointing mortar with a suitable material.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly silicate material formed from metamorphic rocks. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as coatings spayed on beams. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic including tensile strength qualities and it may be found in cement sheet.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, not to move it and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on possible asbestos during the survey and should offer advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Hurlingham. Can a residential surveyor check for any flooding?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m houses and flats are at a high risk of flooding damage, and owning a property in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flood water can enter a house in Hurlingham through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Fortunately, no recent Hurlingham flood alerts have been announced (source: Environment Agency).
