HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Dukinfield and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Dukinfield property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Dukinfield property, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Dukinfield property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor advise on the condition of the gas flues?

A local surveyor will locate and visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas connected appliances or installations e.g. associated asbestos. External fittings will not be dislodged. The gas system will not be tested in any way. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, should you have any concerns about gas at all, , call a gas safe engineer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent has mentioned there might be asbestos wall panelling concealed in the flat. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including lagging.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in insulation. The main origins of asbestos were South Africa.

All forms (including white) are deadly and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a solitary fibre is not fatal.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to remove the asbestos and professional advice should be sought urgently. Getting rid of asbestos will likely be expensive must always be conducted by professionals. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Dukinfield survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of an infestation in the loft conversion - How do we investigate further?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If you believe termites, or any pest, may be present, request that your RICS surveyor pay close attention during the survey.
