Home Buyers Survey in Ross On Wye

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Ross On Wye and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Ross On Wye property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Ross On Wye property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there may be asbestos ceilings at the apartment. What is asbestos and does the surveyor look at this?

Asbestos is a deleterious fibrous substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) may be in building materials e.g. vinyl flooring.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic including tensile strength properties, it may be found in asbestos blocks. Technically all forms (including white) are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to displace asbestos and expert advice must be taken ASAP. You should never attempt to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not confirm the existence asbestos on a Ross On Wye home survey. However, surveyors will note suspected asbestos risks and should recommend relevant tests.

Damaged Render

What problems will your Ross On Wye Surveyor be looking for on a spar dash rendered (stucco) house in Ross On Wye.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is a type of render. Usually stucco render is layered over brick to form a smooth stone like surface. Stucco is highly aesthetic and is common on some Regency properties. It may have lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to help stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors in Ross On Wye can show defects e.g. trapped moisture culminating in damp problems. Other issues may be when the stucco is taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Resolving problems may be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor report on the condition of the gas appliances?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually look at any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) for instance, as well as gas connected fixtures such as the possibility of asbestos. External fittings or housings won't be detached. Needless to say, gas can be fatal, should you have any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
