HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Perranporth and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Perranporth property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Perranporth property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

The qualified surveyor will locate and visually check out the accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the location of the meter as part of the Perranporth survey, as well as gas connected appliances or installations e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. Fittings or covers won't however be dislodged. Of course, gas can be hazardous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when purchasing a maisonette next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial rubbish disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Risks might include complex organic chemicals. Health issues such as downs syndrome have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveyors in Perranporth will consider structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets and Cornwall Local Authority and advise you .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is concern white asbestos ceiling material in existence at the flat. What is asbestos and does the surveyor look at this?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example patching compounds.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in vinyl flooring. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace it and professional advice should be sought urgently. You should not attempt to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Perranporth home survey. However, surveyors will report on possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.
