About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Purton

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Purton and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Purton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Purton property's condition in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Purton. Can a home buyers survey check for flooding?

A wide variety of factors can cause floods, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and owning a property in Purton in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The property survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled property. Are there any problems that need to be investigated?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Naylor Hill Sandstone to Hopton Wood Limestone. Defects affecting stone-built property in Purton 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. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Purton Landfill Quarry, New Road, Purton, Swindon, Wiltshire, SN5 9HG for details. Call 01793 771759 for more information.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is asbestos in some walls at the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including flooring materials. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in fireplace. Technically all forms are dangerous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken on no account to remove it and professional advice should be sought without delay. You should never endeavour to disturb it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a Purton survey. However they will mention the risk of asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
