HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Congleton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Congleton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Congleton property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor report on the condition of the gas heaters?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the Congleton survey, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home, for instance ventilation of flue (if blocked). The fittings will not however be detached. Gas can be dangerous and if there are any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer immediately.

Building Surveys on houses

When investing in an abandoned period bungalow home in Congleton - is it best to get a full structural survey?

Structural surveys are now known as the Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report has enough detail for a post fifties Congleton house assembled from standard construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is certainly the most advisable selection for the house described. You should be aware of one or two caveats exist with a property survey as RICS chartered surveyor is not in a position to (unless owners consent provided) open up the structure of the Congleton house of assess serviceability of a boiler. Permanent outbuildings will typically be reported on during the survey.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there could be some brown asbestos roof tiles affecting the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a noxious material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials including fireplace.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire doors. Most of it was sourced from the US. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a one fibre will not kill you.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb the asbestos and expert advice should be sought urgently. Removing it asbestos is dear but absolutely must be completed by trained experts. Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your Congleton surveyor should mention possible asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
