HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Millom and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Millom property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will offer a more detailed analysis of the Millom property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Millom House Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there may be powdery white asbestos duct connectors situated in the home. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including fire doors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in duct connectors. Technically all forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to break asbestos and professional advice must be taken ASAP. You should not endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos as part of the survey. They will report on possible asbestos during the Millom survey and should suggest further investigation.

Gas flame

Will the RICS chartered surveyor look at the serviceability of the gas installations?

Yes. The RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the home, in addition to gas related appliances e.g. associated asbestos. Your Millom RICS surveyor won't remove any gas fittings nor will they run any tests of any kind on the appliances or system. Of course, gas can be unsafe, should you have any concerns relating to gas installations, call a gas engineer.

Cumbria based local Gas Safe registered companies include J Procter of Cumbria, St. Lukes Road, Millom, Cumbria Tel. 07950220919 and DMG of 52 Market Street, Millom, Cumbria Tel. 01229775720.

The regulations require that all landlords have to complete appliance and installation inspections yearly and punishments for failure to comply are criminal .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Diagonal bond walls on this home in Millom has deteriorated. What are the possible consequences?

Brick-constructed property do benefit from many advantages. However, they can also experience numerous defects, ranging from signs of movement to frost damage. Your RICS surveyor would usually include these. One problem often found is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact A & J (City) Ltd for a repairs estimate at 020 8548 4488 or 82 Mitcham Rd, London, E6 3LU.

For example, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. .

The consequences of amateur repairs can either worsen the problem, or create entirely new defects in a brick wall. Professional advice can reduce the risk of this.
