HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Selsdon and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Selsdon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer comprehensive details of the Selsdon property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor advise on the serviceability of the gas installations?

The will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at the mains gas installation as part of the survey, in addition to gas affiliated appliances e.g. prefabricated flues. Fittings or covers however, won't be taken off. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Of course, gas is potentially fatal, if you have any worries about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas engineer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there might be asbestos walls being found in the home. What is asbestos and does the surveyor look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials e.g. central heating flues. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic fire retarding qualities and it may be found in garage roofs.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are deadly and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken never to displace it. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a Selsdon survey. However, surveyors will note suspected asbestos during the survey and will offer advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

Are Selsdon properties at risk, and does a home buyers survey search for possible water damage?

Contrary to popular opinion, the distance a Selsdon property is from the nearest river or coast is not the only measure of flood risk, and insurance premiums. can be significantly affected for homes in flood-risk areas. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger.

Flood water can enter a property in Selsdon through several routes, including incorrectly fitted window frames.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The RICS surveyor may ask the vendor about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.
