HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Bridgnorth and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Bridgnorth property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does give you a more detailed analysis of the Bridgnorth property's general condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a building in Bridgnorth - What aspects of the roof will be looked into?

Property in and around Bridgnorth in good condition may be exposed to difficulties with the roof, for example, torn or punctured damp-proofing. From slates to ridge flashing, every part of the roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Bridgnorth builder for the job itself.

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas mains supply?

The RICS surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route at the building, as well as gas related gas installations in the house like flue/chimney maintenance. Any external fittings won't be dislodged. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially hazardous and if there are any concerns about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Bridgnorth based gas engineers include Neil Welsh of 8 Bridge Street, Bridgnorth, Shropshire Tel. 07903522263 and The Gas People of 12, Pineway, Bridgnorth, Shropshire Tel. 07800 501999.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there might be asbestos wall panelling concealed in the flat. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials including gutters. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good sound absorption properties, it may be found in eaves. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to move the asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. They will mention potential asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
