HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Tenbury Wells and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Tenbury Wells property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does give exhaustive analysis of the Tenbury Wells property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a maisonette in Tenbury Wells, does the residential surveyor search for signs of flooding damage?

A wide variety of factors can cause flood damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and home buyers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. The home survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The property surveyor may ask the seller if the property has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a possibility of damaged blue asbestos ceiling boards present in building. What are the issues with asbestos?

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

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof tiles for example. Technically all forms are ultimately hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break asbestos and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will report on the risk of asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor go into detail on the condition of the gas installations?

Your chartered surveyor will visually check out any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the gas pipe route as part of the Tenbury Wells survey, in addition to gas related appliances or installations like flue/chimney maintenance. Gas fittings however, won't be removed. Needless to say, gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas safe engineer.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 stipulate that all landlords are legally required to carry out appliance and installation inspections yearly. Non compliance penalties are criminal .
