HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Seahouses and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Seahouses property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Seahouses property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there may be a danger of white asbestos Fuse box affecting the maisonette. Is this a major concern and are there any health risks?

Concerns around asbestos are common. Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials such as roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters. The main origins of asbestos were the US.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact inhaling a solitary fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful not to displace it. Professional advice must be taken immediately. Getting rid of it will likely be costly but absolutely

must be conducted by experts. Seahouses Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on possible asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.

Gas flame

Will a surveyor report on the serviceability of the gas flues?

The local surveyor will visually inspect any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the routing of any gas pipes at the property, as well as gas related appliances for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). A Seahouses RICS chartered surveyor won't remove fittings nor will they do any tests on the system. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings at all, , call a gas safe engineer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report will contain a property valuation as well as a reinstatement cost estimate. To fully consider an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will pair area knowledge and other things relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and use key assumptions like there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Seahouses assumptions like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.
