HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Whetstone and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Whetstone property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with a more detailed analysis of the Whetstone property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect said there may be a risk of brown asbestos ceiling boards situated in the flat. What is asbestos, can it be easily dealt with and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a dangerous substance. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials such as pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation. Technically all forms are ultimately dangerous and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken not to disturb the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and should suggest further investigation.

Gas flame

Will a RICS chartered surveyor inspect the state of the gas appliances?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) as part of the survey, as well as gas connected fittings for example - the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The gas fittings won't be detached. The gas system will not be tested at all. Needless to say, gas is potentially fatal, should there be any worries relating to gas installations or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

Do we need to order a full structural survey when considering a modified thirties cottage in Whetstone instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Conventionally called the Structural Survey by many agents and buyers, it is now defunct and and this most technical survey has been given a new moniker by RICS and the proper name is now the Building Survey. When contemplating the buying of an altered home, for example an unloved house, this is the most appropriate choice to opt for. Following a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings a written report (pdf and written copy) will be posted and emailed to the prospective buyer outlining comprehensive and far-reaching insight concerning the state of repair of the building.

There are several provisos with the survey insofar as a RICS surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the of the Whetstone property e.g. removing secured panels.
