HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Dawlish property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Dawlish property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

For a HomeBuyer Report on a Dawlish property what could a an amber light rating mean for 'E9 - Other' ?

The part of the HomeBuyer Report mentions other aspects which do not fit into the other categories. A stair run that is too short or steep, for example, is included in Section E. The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show the seriousness of any issues included in the survey. Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. This may not be urgent, however. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there are asbestos roof tiles in existence at the property. What is asbestos, is it hazardous and will the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials for example coatings spayed on beams. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in cement sheet.

All forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods. Its existence does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

If found, care should be taken not to displace it and expert advice should be sought immediately. You should not try to disturb it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos as part of the survey. However they will note potential asbestos during the Dawlish survey and should offer advice.

Gas flame

Does the Dawlish surveyor examine the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters where relevant, as well as gas affiliated appliances such as the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The Dawlish qualified RICS surveyor won't actually remove any gas fittings and will not run any tests on the appliances or system. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, should there be any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.
