Home Buyers Survey in Keswick

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Keswick and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Keswick property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you opt for a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Keswick property's general condition along with information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos lagging situated in the maisonette. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example shed roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in soil vent pipes. Most asbestos was imported from the US.

All forms are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a single fibre will not kill you.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to remove asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently. Removing it asbestos can be costly but absolutely must be conducted by trained experts. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Keswick survey. However, surveyors will note possible asbestos risks and will suggest experts are consulted.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw that the basement floor dipped in one corner when we last viewed the property. What subsidence-related defects will my HomeBuyer Report inspect?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. Fortunately, subsidence can be fixed quite easily. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs when the ground is forced up rather than down.

Many homes develop superficial cracks in a wall or floor, as a result of temperature or humidity variation. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
