About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Tiptree

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Tiptree and of the 3, which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Tiptree property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will offer a thorough analysis of the Tiptree property's state of repair along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be indications of an asbestos Fuse box concealed in the flat. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and will the HomeBuyer Report in Tiptree go into it?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. Some types may be in building materials such as pipe lagging insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging. Technically all forms are dangerous and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken on no account to break the asbestos and professional advice should be sought immediately. Never endeavour to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Tiptree survey. Your surveyor will report on possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a ground floor apartment in Tiptree, does the building survey investigate signs of flood damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

Flooding in Tiptree can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before water damage starts. The Building Survey may also, where appropriate, outline a strategy for flood-related upkeep.An awareness of characteristics of the Tiptree area likely to affect the home also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Building Survey if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the home is at risk.

Damaged Render

What will the Surveyor look for on a stucco coated house in Tiptree that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really a form of solid render. Normally stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a very smooth surface. The finish is very beautiful and is common on some Victorian and Georgian homes. Stucco is very like plaster or mortar in its nature. it can be problematic and Tiptree Building Surveys can focus on issues for example, when it is exposed to constant driving rain which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other issues could result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Fixing Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as the skills are getting rarer.
