Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor examine the state of repair of the gas supply?

A qualified RICS surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected as part of the Askam In Furness survey, in addition to gas associated appliances for example - the possibility of asbestos. However, the Askam In Furness chartered surveyor will not remove the fittings and will not do any tests on the system or appliances. Gas is potentially deadly and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it the right choice to upgrade to full structural survey prior to investing in a dilapidated, seventies loft apartment close to Askam In Furness?

The Building Survey has taken over the Full Structural Survey following its renaming in 2010 by RICS. If buying an unusual home e.g. a period Askam In Furness apartment - it is the most appropriate survey to opt for. Once a thorough inspection of the accessible parts of the house, a non prescribed format of report will be dispatched to the prospective purchaser going through thorough and salient professional advice in relation to the condition of the house.

There are certain no go areas with a Building Survey to bear in mind insofar as the surveyor will not be able to (unless safe to do so) force or open up the fabric of the Askam In Furness apartment e.g. removing secured hatches.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1890s property in Askam In Furness with stone walls. Are there specific factors to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Incorrect use of Cement based mortar on a structure build with Hydraulic Lime can often cause problems for properties in Askam In Furness with stone walls. Problems which impact stone-built properties in Askam In Furness can vary greatly, with issues like erosion being quote common. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Askam In Furness should be able to supply local stone.
