Home Buyers Survey in Kingsthorpe

HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Kingsthorpe and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kingsthorpe property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Kingsthorpe property's condition and it includes advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be indications of an asbestos Fuse box concealed in the flat. Why would there be asbestos, can it be remedied and does the survey look at this?

Property erected earlier than the mid 80's will in all probability contain any number of asbestos based materials. Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. soil vent pipes.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in rain water goods. Most asbestos was imported from the US. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a single fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to disturb the asbestos and professional advice should be sought immediately. Removing it asbestos is dear and must always be conducted by trained experts. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. Your Kingsthorpe surveyor should mention possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect may wet conditions have on our new Kingsthorpe building? Will the surveyor report on this? Could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that wet weather and the effect it can have on homes in Kingsthorpe are rarely paid due attention by property buyers. One indication that gutters are under performing is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. Poor drainage can lead to damp and mould.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to fix. However, if the drains are untreated or poorly maintained, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
