Home Buyers Survey in Moston

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Moston and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Moston property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Moston property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I've put in an offer in Moston. What advice would a property surveyor in Moston give?

Brick-constructed residential property feature several advantages. However, they can also show signs of various issues and defects. For instance, rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered and should be taken very seriously. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Greenhill Patrick, 21 Merryhills Ct, London, N14 4AY on 07950 335709 for a quote for repair work.

Brick-constructed property have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years, leading to a selection of different courses and brick making techniques. As an example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.

Stone block wall damage

Can houses built with stone create more problems for a new owner? Are there specific potential issues to consider, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Ranging from Hall Dale Sandstone to Cromwell Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Defects affecting stone-built Moston houses can vary, salt contamination of being relatively common.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. Choice of stone will impact the lifespan of a structure, for example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there could be brown asbestos Artex affecting the home. What is asbestos and what are the remedial options?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as cement sheet. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in cement for example. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to move it and expert advice must be taken without delay. On no account attempt to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Moston HomeBuyer report. Your Moston surveyor should mention the risk of asbestos and will advise accordingly.
