HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Beacontree Heath and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Beacontree Heath property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Beacontree Heath property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend commented that there is a risk of asbestos flooring materials in existence at the apartment. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and does the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials for example central heating flues.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in garage roofs. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful not to displace it and professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your Beacontree Heath surveyor should report on suspected asbestos during the survey and will offer advice.

Gas flame

Does the local surveyor inspect the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include whether the meter is in an escape route at the home, as well as gas related fixtures, for instance chimney linings. Any external fittings won't however be taken off. The gas system won't be tested at all. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it can be deadly, if you have any concerns relating to gas installations of any type or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas engineer.
