Home Buyers Survey in Skellingthorpe

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Skellingthorpe and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Skellingthorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Skellingthorpe property, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Skellingthorpe property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Skellingthorpe, what warnings would a Skellingthorpe property surveyor give for a 70s property built from brick chimney? Does render make a difference?

Brick-constructed flats feature several advantages. However, they can also be affected by both minor and serious issues, including inadequate damp-proofing and sulphate attack. The property surveyor will mention these, with feedback. A defect requiring immediate attention is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Cooney T Brickwork Ltd should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 07930 718071 or 37 Harlesden Gdns, London, NW10 4EY.

E.g. English garden wall bond or header bond may be used in the construction of flats in Skellingthorpe. If the surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos coatings spayed on beams at the property. Which types of asbestos are a concern?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceilings.

All forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to move the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently. You should not try to disturb it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However they will mention suspected asbestos during the Skellingthorpe survey and should recommend professional testing.
