Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact will wet conditions have on a Chadderton property, and does our property surveyor mention it? Are repairs going to be expensive?

Regular rainfall is common in Chadderton and across the country, but the effect which high levels of rainfall has on homes is not considered by buyers. One indication that rainwater goods are blocked is corroded downspouts. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Luckily, drainage problems are quite easy to resolve, if caught early. If disregarded, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a danger of blue asbestos textured coatings in the apartment. What is asbestos, is it dangerous and will the HomeBuyer Report in Chadderton go into it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials including duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to electrical damage properties, it may be found in insulating board. The main origins of asbestos were Canada.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a single fibre is not fatal.

If found, care should be taken on no account to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Professional removal of asbestos will likely be costly but must be conducted by experts. Chadderton Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and will offer advice.

Gas flame

Will a RICS surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas mains supply?

A qualified RICS surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route where relevant, as well as gas related appliances e.g. associated asbestos. External fittings won't however be detached. Most people are aware that gas is potentially unsafe, should you have any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.
