Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented - saying there may be asbestos cement sheets in existence at the property. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials for example boards around radiators.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic sound absorption qualities and it may be found in artex. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful never to disturb it. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Lower Sunbury Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will note the risk of asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Conservation area

Are there any issues I need to be aware of if buying a home in Lower Sunbury inside a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local authority. Lower Sunbury surveyors must have local knowledge of relevant local factors and any effect they have on the property and its value. Property values will probably be higher due to them being unspoilt.

Surveyors are trained to inform you whether the property looks to be is designated and Section I of the Lower Sunbury Homebuyer Report will advise further enquiries are carried out as part of the legal process. Unsympathetic extensions to the building may also be advised, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Robertson Rivers are a local firm situated at Mole Cottage, Elmbridge, Surrey, KT8 9BE and may be prepared help you with further information. Tel: 020 8979 6077

Gas flame

Does the surveyor examine the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the home, in addition to gas associated fittings e.g. chimney linings. If there are any fittings they won't actually be dislodged. Needless to say, gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.
