HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Manningtree and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Manningtree property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Manningtree property's general condition as well as advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt why not get a Manningtree House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Will the surveyor look into the state of the gas supply?

Your RICS surveyor will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the building, in addition to gas associated fixtures e.g. associated asbestos. The external fittings or housings will not be taken off. Gas is potentially dangerous, if you have any worries about gas fittings at all, , contact a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a RICS surveyor check possible flood damage, or whether flooding has affected neighbour's houses?

A wide variety of factors can cause flooding damage, from inadequate drainage to tidal activity, and the value of a residential property in an at-risk area may be impacted. A flood risk alert service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. The building surveyor may ask the residents if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a risk of asbestos pipe insulation situated in the property. What is asbestos, is there a danger, can it be easily dealt with and Should we pull out?

Asbestos is a dangerous silicate material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials including fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent heat resistance properties, it may be found in fire doors.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or asbestosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, not to remove asbestos and expert advice must be taken immediately. You should never endeavour to get rid of it yourself.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Manningtree HomeBuyer report. They will note the risk of asbestos risks and should suggest further investigation.
