HomeBuyer Report

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Yes. A RICS chartered surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected as part of the Carmarthenshire survey, in addition to gas connected appliances/installations for example - the possibility of asbestos. A Carmarthenshire RICS surveyor will not remove any external fittings or housings and will not conduct any tests on the system or appliances. Needless to say, gas is potentially dangerous and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer immediately.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. Which issues relating to the roofing will be considered?

Local property in otherwise fine condition can often hide issues with the roof. Any part of the roof or loft, such as wind braces, ought to be checked. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

The expense of wholesale replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A roofing contractor in the local area with a recommendation from a friend or family member should be able to assist with a quote.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a danger of asbestos duct connectors being found in the ground floor flat. What is asbestos and does the Carmarthenshire HomeBuyer Report go into it?

Properties constructed before 1985 will include any number of materials containing asbestos. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials e.g. fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire doors. The main origins of asbestos were South Africa.

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

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful on no account to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay. Getting rid of asbestos will likely be costly but must be conducted by experts. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos during a Carmarthenshire building survey. Your surveyor will report on the risk of asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.
