HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Wythenshawe and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Wythenshawe property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any works or an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Wythenshawe property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

A local builder has mentioned subsidence could be a concern. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence-related matters will the Wythenshawe Surveyor examine?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most situations, subsidence can be remedied quite easily. Less common than subsidence, heave describes the movement of earth upwards.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. Signs of potential subsidence include new, suddenly visible cracks in brick or render.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there might be asbestos pipe lagging in existence at the house. What is asbestos, is there a danger and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous structured mineral formed from metamorphic rocks. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example paper lining.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in painted over ceilings. Technically all forms (including white) are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to break asbestos. Professional advice should be sought ASAP. You should not attempt to disturb it yourself. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Wythenshawe home survey. They will mention the risk of asbestos during the survey and should recommend professional testing.

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Yes. A will visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes as part of the survey, as well as gas connected installations such as chimney breasts. The gas fittings however, won't be removed. The gas system will not be tested in any way. Of course, gas is potentially deadly, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations of any type, contact a gas safe engineer.
