HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Crawley property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it does offer comprehensive details of the Crawley property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there is a risk of asbestos insulation being found in the home. What is asbestos and does the Crawley home survey report on it?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including soffit boards. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance qualities and it may be found in duct connectors.

All forms are hazardous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily constitute a risk to health.

If discovered, one must be careful however, not to move it and professional advice must be taken ASAP. You should never attempt to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Crawley survey. Your surveyor will mention possible asbestos during the survey and will recommend professional testing.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an older converted stable in Crawley. What consequences will the property's cruck frame have on upkeep?

Some purchasers have looked at purchasing a unique or characterful property. For traditionally-built Crawley property, age, however, can create difficulties for an owner, and Crawley homes employing traditional methods can be costly to maintain. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. This may end up costing more than initially budgeted. Discuss this with the chartered surveyor for more detail. Built in around 1473, 16 High Street, Vine Cottage, Hall in Crawley is an example of a traditional Medieval-period hall house.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the mid-century home we are interested to purchase we saw that there could be corrosion of the wiring. Will a Crawley Homebuyer Report write anything on any faults with the electrics?

During a Building Survey in Crawley your RICS surveyor should remark on the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a dangerous state of repair. This will include a non invasive view of the accessible sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. as well as areas like the condition residual circuit breakers (RCD). Inspecting the documents from any recent PIR handled by an electrician will usually form part of the survey. Ascertaining the whereabouts of any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should form part of the Homebuyer report in Crawley .

The IEE strongly advise that a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every ten years (5 if letting).
