HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Astwood Bank and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Astwood Bank property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Astwood Bank surveyor investigate signs of flood damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

The lives of many home owners in Astwood Bank and across the UK have been impacted by water damage caused by flooding, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for houses in flood-risk areas. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes. In addition, the Building Survey may offer suggestions for better flood defences.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. properly constructed drainage. Also included on Environment

Agency's flood danger alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor give details on the condition of the gas installations?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter for instance, in addition to gas associated fittings like ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Astwood Bank local surveyor will not remove gas fittings nor will they do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Gas is potentially deadly and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there may be asbestos roof gutters present in the home I am buying. What are the issues with asbestos, are there any health risks, what are the remedial options and Should I be worried?

Asbestos is a pernicious material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to displace it and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will note possible asbestos during the survey and should suggest experts are consulted.
