HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Southall and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Southall property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Southall property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas heaters?

Yes. Your will visually examine the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas (and oil heaters) for example, in addition to gas associated fittings like the possibility of asbestos. The external fittings or housings will not however be taken off. Gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries relating to gas installations or if you smell gas, call a gas engineer.

Southall based gas engineers include Jack Of All Trades of 26, Sherborne Avenue, Southall, Middlesex Tel. 07971037545 and AMR Services of 103 Hambrough Road, Southall, Middlesex Tel. 07957 251555.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations require that all landlords must to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply include heavy fines .

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 surveyor look at this?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. ceilings.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent sound absorption qualities and it may be found in ceiling material. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to displace the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken immediately.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will mention suspected asbestos and will advise accordingly.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rainfall have on a Southall house? Will the chartered surveyor report on this? Can damaged gutters decrease our property's value?

Both in Southall, and throughout the county, rain is so common that buyers rarely think about it. Unfortunately the effect which damp weather has on a house is overlooked by property buyers. For instance, spalling on walls around drainage may indicate that the downspouts are damaged. Poor drainage can lead to damp and mould.

Fortunately, guttering issues are generally easy to repair, if identified early. If not cleared out regularly, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and will get increasingly difficult to successfully resolve.
