Which Property Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen when you are purchasing a property built from conventional materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable order and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Chalfont St Giles

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Chalfont St Giles) will also be conducted by a MRICS or FRICS qualified surveyor but is more detailed. Choose this when buying a non standard , for example timber frame buildings.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Chalfont St Giles and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Chalfont St Giles property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Chalfont St Giles property's general condition and it includes information on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there may be signs of asbestos textured coatings situated in the building. Should we be concerned?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials such as wall panelling.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in toilet cistern.

All forms are potentially fatal and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to breathing in a single fibre is not deadly.

If found, care should be taken however, on no account to disturb it and expert advice should be sought without delay. Professional removal of asbestos can be expensive must always be conducted by experts. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during a Chalfont St Giles building survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos risks and should advise accordingly.

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor report on the serviceability of the gas heaters?

The RICS chartered surveyor will visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the mains gas installation at the home, as well as gas related fixtures for example - flue/chimney maintenance. A Chalfont St Giles qualified surveyor won't remove any gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be fatal, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer immediately.

Chalfont St Giles based gas engineers include DJH Plumbing & Heating of 61, Narcot Road, Chalfont St. Giles, Buckinghamshire Tel. 07961 111130 and SJK Plumbing & Heating of 12, Lagger Close, Chalfont St. Giles, Buckinghamshire Tel. 07861730835.

Gas regulations require that all landlords are obligated to complete appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a house in Chalfont St Giles, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What should we investigate during the survey?

This is a common concern for house purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Many homes can be hiding serious damage to the roof, including. From rafters to roof battens, every part of the roof will be taken into account. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Call Bryan Steve of 13 The Hawthorns, Maple Cross, Rickmansworth, WD3 9UH on 01923 778897 for a quote.
