Which Home Buyers Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Ringmer

    A RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice when purchasing a home made of conventional materials i.e. brick and tile, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Ringmer and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Ringmer property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Ringmer property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the Ringmer surveyor give details on the serviceability of the gas installations?

The qualified surveyor will locate and visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include gas heaters at the property, in addition to gas connected appliances/installations e.g. prefabricated flues. However, the Ringmer surveyor won't actually remove the external fittings or housings and he or she won't conduct any tests on the system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a building proximate to a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including inert refuse disposal. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Worries include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example. Health problems such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Ringmer will notice any structural issues resulting from the site. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing searches of the British Geological database and Wealden Local Authority and advise you .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there might be asbestos fireplace affecting the building. Is this a major concern and are there any health risks?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials for example cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceilings. Technically all forms including white ( Chrysotile) are deadly and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. In fact inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to displace asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay. Getting rid of it can be expensive must always be carried out by trained experts.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Ringmer survey. However, surveyors will mention suspected asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.
