HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Tottenham and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Tottenham property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Tottenham property's condition and it includes information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I am worried that there may be asbestos pipe lagging affecting the flat. What is asbestos and what are the risks?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. patching compounds. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in vinyl flooring for example. Technically all forms (including white) are ultimately pernicious and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to move the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will mention possible asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

A RICS surveyor will locate and visually check out the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the condition of the meter as part of the survey, as well as gas connected gas installations in the house e.g. chimney breasts. Your Tottenham qualified RICS surveyor will not remove the gas fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas can be hazardous, if you have any worries about gas fittings or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, call a gas engineer.

Damaged Render

What problems will the Chartered Surveyor be looking for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency house in Tottenham which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really just a smooth and flat render. Typically stucco render is layered over brick hardens to a smooth flat finish. The effect is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Victorian and Regency properties for example. Stucco is often problematic and Tottenham Building Surveys commonly discover defects such as lateral pattern like cracking that follows the mortar lines between the brick.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may be when moisture enters beneath sills which causes large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems with stucco may be difficult as the skills are becoming rarer.
