Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be bugs at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Homes in Chorlton cum Hardy are not usually impacted by serious cases of vermin, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. An affected house may not always be easy to identify.

For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Treatment for pests may include chemical treatment.

Gas flame

Will the qualified surveyor look at the condition or the safety of the gas installations?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually examine any easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect the mains gas installation at the building, as well as gas connected installations e.g. fireplaces. Any external fittings or housings however, won't be undone. The system will not be tested in any way. Needless to say, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there may be asbestos roof gutters present in the home I am buying. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a deleterious substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as flooring materials. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fireplace. Most asbestos was imported from Canada. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a solitary fibre is not fatal.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered on no account to remove the asbestos and expert advice must be taken as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos will be costly must always be conducted by experts. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos during the survey. Surveyors will mention the risk of asbestos and will suggest further investigation.
