HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hayle and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Hayle property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hayle property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. What is asbestos and are there any risks?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as central heating flues.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in garage roofs. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, not to displace it and professional advice must be taken immediately. You should not try to handle it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will report on possible asbestos risks and will offer advice.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I would need to consider when purchasing a building in Hayle in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 of conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with local authorities.

A Building Surveyors must have sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the effect may have on the property. Property Prices will probably be greater which is down to conservation areas being unspoilt. However a large number have fallen into a state e.g. unauthorised alterations to the fronts, roofs and chimneys of buildings

Surveyors are expected note whether the property is/might be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Hayle Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unapproved developments to the building may also be noted, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

Gas flame

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

Yes. The local surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the meter location/position at the property, as well as gas affiliated installations, for instance chimney breasts or flues. A Hayle surveyor will not remove external fittings and he or she won't run any tests on the gas system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it can be unsafe, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.
