Home Buyers Survey in Winchcombe

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Winchcombe and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Winchcombe property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension on the property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Winchcombe property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be powdery asbestos wallpaper in the house. What are the risks of asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. acoustic ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good fire retarding qualities and it may be found in patching compounds.

All forms are ultimately hazardous and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful not to move it. Professional advice must be taken without delay. You should not try to remove it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. However they will report on suspected asbestos risks and will suggest further investigation.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A house we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Winchcombe House Survey consider this?

Whether a house was built in 1705 or 2005, factors as varied as flooding or dry rot can create difficulties for an owner. Foundations dug into clay-rich soil, for example, can result in a range of issues, with compression of layers of the sub-soil and soil movement being relatively common. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content. Signs like a sticking door in the kitchen can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Winchcombe, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house.
