HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Hither Green and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Hither Green property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Hither Green property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor look at the state of repair of the gas installations?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the mains gas installation at the home, as well as gas connected fittings such as balanced flues. Any external fittings or housings won't be detached. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly and if there are any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations require that all landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .

Asbestos roof tiles

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

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material formed from metamorphic rocks. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example ceiling boards.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in boilers.

All forms including Chrysotile are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken not to break asbestos and professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos risks and should inform you of the options.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Hither Green. Is there a flood risk, and will the surveyor investigate water damage?

The lives of many homeowners in Hither Green and across the UK have been disrupted by flooding damage. Both buyers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Details relating to signs of flooding may be reported in Section J of the HomeBuyer Report. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a HomeBuyer Report if the house surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property in Hither Green is at risk.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the River Quaggy Flood Alleviation Scheme at Kidbrooke, Lee and Hither Green Including Sutcliffe Park, London Boroughs of Lewisham and Greenwich, near Hither Green, .
