Home Buyers Survey in Walton on the Naze

HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Walton on the Naze and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Walton on the Naze property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the Walton on the Naze property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is less cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Walton on the Naze property's general condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated traces of blue asbestos may be lurking boiler cupboard at the property. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and will the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. duct connectors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging insulation. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately potentially fatal and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to remove the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. On no account attempt to get rid of it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your Walton on the Naze surveyor should note the risk of asbestos during the Walton on the Naze survey and should offer advice.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Walton on the Naze may be worth checking. What solutions are to available to remedy this?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence and settlement are often confused. Settlement will often occur in newer homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact, but this should settle after a short while. The builder will likely return to a new home within a few months to make good any settlement cracks. In regions with a high concentration of clay soil, drought can cause the water table to drop. This can dry out, shrinking the clay, putting pressure on the structure and causing movement. In severe temperatures, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence. This is not usually a concern in England and Wales however.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
