HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Gedling and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Gedling property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Gedling property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I visited a property I am interested to buy I noticed that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit, does a Gedling survey advise on the electrical system condition?

When conducting a Home Buyers Survey in Gedling a surveyor should remark on the overall electrical system if it is clear that the electrics are in a dangerous condition. A Home surveyor will also things like checking the condition of any visible wiring. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the survey in Gedling. Inspecting any documents from any recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE advise that a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) be completed every ten years (5 if letting).

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a danger of an asbestos fireplace at the house. What is asbestos and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as stove insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic tiles. Technically all forms are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to move it and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a Gedling survey. Surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and should offer advice.
