HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Shrewsbury property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Shrewsbury property's condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified surveyor inspect the condition or the safety of the gas heaters?

The RICS surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the system. This will include the meter location/position for example, as well as gas affiliated fittings e.g. ventilation of flue (if blocked). The fittings will not be removed. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Gas regulations require landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections yearly. Non compliance penalties are harsh .

Substandard guttering

On the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' include?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly. As buyers in Shrewsbury are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property purchasers a clear understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrespective of standardised format of the report, your surveyor will provide a bespoke report, tailored to your particular concerns. An example of this is where roof drains are not located at the roof's lowest points. They are visually inspected. This section does not include defects in the sewer system.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented to say there may be an asbestos boiler affecting the flat. What is asbestos, is there a danger and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a pernicious silicate material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials such as pipe lagging insulation. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to displace it and expert advice should be sought urgently. You should never endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and will offer advice.
