HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Wargrave and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

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

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Wargrave. What advice would the chartered surveyor give in their report?

Wargrave properties in good condition can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer issues with the roof like. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the purlins to the valley gutters, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Wargrave, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Call Avenir Roofing of Serving Wargrave on 0800 163955 for an estimate.

Gas flame

Does the qualified surveyor look at the state of repair of the gas installations?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually survey the easily accessible parts of the system. A surveyor will want to inspect gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the home, as well as gas associated fittings like balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. A Wargrave surveyor will not remove fittings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Needless to say, gas can be hazardous, if you have any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Regulations stipulate landlords are legally required to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are severe .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be asbestos coatings spayed on beams in existence at the house. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and were commonly found in the building materials for example duct connectors.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in pipe lagging insulation.

All forms (including white) are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken on no account to displace it. Professional advice should be sought as soon as possible.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Wargrave HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will mention the risk of asbestos and should recommend professional testing.
