HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Bedlington and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Bedlington property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Bedlington property's general condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Bedlington House Survey Quote on our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor look at the safety of the gas flues?

Your surveyor will visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters for example, in addition to gas related appliances e.g. chimney breasts or flues. External fittings or housings won't however be taken off. Gas can be deadly, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may rainfall have on a Bedlington property? Will the property surveyor report on this? If there is a problem, will they be inconvenient to fix?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather this issue is rarely considered properly by home buyers. If you have only seen the property in dry weather, problems are unlikely to be visible.

Signs that drainage are at risk include mildew in the attic. These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost. If not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there could be asbestos lagging present in the home I am buying. What is asbestos?

Fears around asbestos are understandable. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. Some types may be in building materials including pipe lagging.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation. It is mainly found in Canada.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. In fact breathing in a one fibre is not fatal.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to remove the asbestos. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible. Professional removal of asbestos is expensive but must be conducted by trained experts.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will mention potential asbestos risks and will recommend relevant tests.
