HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Sully and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Sully property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Sully property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there is a concern of asbestos roof tiles affecting the property. Why would there be asbestos and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials such as patching compounds.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in vinyl flooring.

All forms including Chrysotile are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung if inhaled over sustained periods. If discovered, one must be careful not to disturb it and professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention suspected asbestos during the survey and will advise accordingly.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the house we are hoping to lease, the agent said that there is an old fuse board - will the surveyor go into detail on electrical defects?

When performing a Home Buyers Survey in Sully your RICS surveyor will remark on the electrical system if it is obvious that the electrics are in a dangerous state.

This will include a by sight check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the unconcealed areas of the wiring or fusebox in addition to areas like reporting on the condition of the fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters or the whereabouts of the meter and fuse board . A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations conducted by an electrician should form part of the survey in Sully.

We recommend you always get local guidance from a certified electrician contact Katona Electrical Services , 1-1 Pembroke Court/Albert Road, Penarth, CF64 1BX .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Sully?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather the impact heavy rainfall can have on your home is not given the attention it deserves. For example, "gushing" gutters can often mean that the drainage systems are worth a closer look. This can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to repair, if identified early. If untreated or poorly maintained, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
