HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Belmont and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Belmont property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension on the Belmont property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Belmont property's condition as well as advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor give details on the state of repair of the gas appliances?

The will visually examine any accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas connected appliances or installations for example - balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. A Belmont surveyor won't remove fittings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests on the functionality of the gas system. Gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to carry out appliance and installation inspections annually and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Should I investigate gutters? We're concerned about replacement costs.

I find it odd that rain and the effect it can have on Belmont homes are not given more thought by buyers.

Signs that drainage systems are at risk include water pooling below gutters. This could then result in water damage.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to remedy. Where this is left untreated, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there is a possibility of asbestos fire doors in the flat. What is asbestos and how is it remedied?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials for example acoustic tiles.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic ceilings. Technically all forms (including white) are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break it and professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos during a Belmont building survey. However they will mention possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.
