About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Woodborough

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Woodborough and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Woodborough property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out major works, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Woodborough property's condition along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent mentioned that the had been issues with wet rot. Which issues relating to the attic will be checked?

Woodborough property in good condition can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormers. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as thatching) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A roofing contractor in Woodborough with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of blue asbestos textured coatings in the apartment. What is asbestos, what are the risks and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. ceiling material.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent resistance to electrical damage qualities and it may be found in ceiling boards.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to disturb the asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. Your Woodborough surveyor should report on suspected asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.
