Which Property Survey should you choose?

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to buy a home constructed from conventional building materials such as tile & brick, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Heaton Moor

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Heaton Moor) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this for non standard e.g. stone wall buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Heaton Moor

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Heaton Moor and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Heaton Moor property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Heaton Moor property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of asbestos wallpaper present in the flat. What is asbestos, can it be easily dealt with and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. pipe lagging insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe lagging. The main origins of asbestos were South Africa.

All forms including white are ultimately deadly and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken not to remove asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos will likely be dear but absolutely must be completed by experts. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will mention possible asbestos risks and will inform you of the options.

Building Surveys on houses

I am purchasing a converted regency cottage property in Heaton Moor, is it necessary to get a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. Go for a RICS Building Survey if you are contemplating the house referred to. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a mid century or later unmodified house made out of normal construction materials and methods.

Be aware that a number survey no go areas exist with a Building Survey insofar as your surveyor will not be able to force or open up the structure of the house of comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas mains supply?

A will locate and visually look at the accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, as well as gas connected fixtures for example - associated asbestos. The gas fittings will not however be undone. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially hazardous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas engineer.
