About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Tamworth

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Tamworth and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Tamworth property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap but it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Tamworth property's condition as well as including information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your Property Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Tamworth that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a type of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick hardens to a smooth stone like appearance. It is very appealing and is/was often found on Regency buildings. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Surveyors in Tamworth commonly detail potentially expensive to remedy problems which can include trapped moisture leading to internal damp problems

Another example of problems may include attack from salts derived from wet brickwork. Remedying Stucco problems may be expensive as the skills are getting harder to find.

Asbestos roof tiles

A Tamworth builder commented that there could be powdery asbestos soffit boards situated in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos and what are the remedial options?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials such as walls.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent sound absorption qualities and it may be found in wall panelling for example.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful not to break asbestos. Professional advice should be sought immediately. You should not endeavour to remove it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during the survey. Surveyors will mention potential asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be vermin at the building in Tamworth we're buying, but we are not certain - Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Buyers should know that is not a requirement that a seller report on an infestation. This concern should be taken seriously. Evidence may not be easy to find, for example, cockroaches are nocturnal, and challenging to eradicate. Species common to the UK, such as the German Cockroach, are small, and breed rapidly in moist conditions. This makes them both hard to spot, and to treat successfully. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.
