HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Mevagissey and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Mevagissey property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer comprehensive details of the Mevagissey property's condition as well as including information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example fire doors. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in duct connectors. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken on no account to move the asbestos and professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos as part of the survey. However they will report on the risk of asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor check the serviceability of the gas supply?

Your RICS surveyor will visually survey any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the meter is in an escape route at the property, as well as gas affiliated installations such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. A Mevagissey surveyor won't remove any gas fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests whatsoever on the system or appliances. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent mentioned that the had been issues with damp, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What aspects of the building's roof will be checked during the survey?

Property in and around Mevagissey in good condition could feature problems like wet rot. From collar ties to purlins, every element of the roof should be reported on. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

The expense of felting a flat roof, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Mevagissey builder can provide one.
