HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Belsize Park and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Belsize Park property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Belsize Park property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For more details you can get a Belsize Park Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a property I want to purchase, I noticed that there were damaged electrical sockets; does Belsize Park survey go into detail on electrical defects?

During a Home Survey in Belsize Park your surveyor will usually mention the electrical system if it is suspected that they are in an unsatisfactory state. A Home surveyor is trained to focus on issues like whether there are residual circuit breakers (RCD) and/or miniature circuit breakers (MCBs). Inspecting the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the survey in Belsize Park. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Belsize Park .

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor give details on the safety of the gas mains supply?

Your will visually look at any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas connected appliances, for instance the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. However, the Belsize Park RICS chartered surveyor won't remove any external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests on the gas system. Needless to say, gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that all landlords are obligated to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of asbestos pipe insulation situated in the property. What are the issues with asbestos, what are the remedial options and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials such as home appliances.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in cooker insulation.

All forms including white are deadly and may lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove the asbestos and professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Belsize Park survey. Your surveyor will report on suspected asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
