HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Wickford and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Wickford property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any works or an extension on the property, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Wickford property's general condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor look into the safety of the gas installations?

The qualified RICS surveyor will visually check any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route at the building, in addition to gas affiliated appliances/installations such as the possibility of asbestos. Any gas fittings won't however be removed. Most people are aware that gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations stipulate landlords have to complete appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are criminal .

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. What are the issues with asbestos?

Asbestos was not completely banned until the late nineties and houses built before that may contain asbestos. Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. Some types were commonly found in the building materials e.g. asbestos blocks.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good fire retarding properties, it may be found in asbestos packing in stud walls. It was primarily mined in Canada. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease if inhaled over sustained periods. In fact breathing in a single fibre will not kill you.

If discovered, one must be careful not to remove it and expert advice should be sought as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos can be costly but absolutely must be carried out by experts. Surveyors will not test for asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention potential asbestos risks and should suggest experts are consulted.

House Prices

I would like to buy a detached house in Wickford (SS12), being marketed for £219, 164. What things will a surveyor take into account during a professional valuation ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect property values from whether alterations have planning permission to whether there is a flying freehold. It is useful to look at prices achieved in Wickford at the same time for similar properties.

The average house price completed between July and October in 2012 was £218, 364, which is £800 less than the amount you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £199, 949. Westmead, Chelmsford Road, Rawreth, Wickford, Rochford, Essex, SS11 8TA a detached property sold for £339, 950 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get an accurate house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).
