HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Uxbridge and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Uxbridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Uxbridge property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rain an issue in Uxbridge?

Regular rainfall is common in Uxbridge and across the country, but high levels of rainfall and the effect it can have on Uxbridge houses are ignored by buyers. For instance, rotten roofing elements can often mean that the drainage are under performing, but you may wish to ask your surveyor for more detail. Fortunately, problems with drains are quite easy to repair, if identified early.However, the damage caused, where not maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor examine the safety of the gas flues?

A will locate and visually examine the accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas (and oil heaters) as part of the survey, as well as gas affiliated fixtures such as associated asbestos. Should there be any external fittings they won't actually be removed. Most people are aware that gas can be hazardous, should you have any worries about gas fittings of any type, contact a gas safe engineer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is flaky white asbestos wall panelling present in the flat. What is asbestos and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials for example garage roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in shed roofs. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or scarring of the lung following prolonged exposure. If found, care should be taken never to displace it. Professional advice must be taken ASAP.

Uxbridge Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. However, surveyors will report on potential asbestos and should suggest experts are consulted.
