About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Hayle

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hayle and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Hayle property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hayle property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a qualified RICS surveyor advise on the state of the gas mains supply?

Yes. The local surveyor will locate and visually look at the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the meter location/position at the property, as well as gas affiliated installations, for instance chimney breasts or flues. A Hayle surveyor will not remove external fittings and he or she won't run any tests on the gas system. You should never attempt to fix gas fittings your self as it can be unsafe, should there be any worries about gas fittings, contact a gas safe engineer.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown the thirties house I am meaning to buy I saw that there is old wiring - will a Homebuyer Report in Hayle advise the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Hayle Home Buyers Survey the RICS surveyor will make a note on the state of the electrics if it looks like they are in an unsafe state of repair. Your surveyor will also report back on potential areas for concern such as inspecting the state of any fitted appliances like storage heaters or verifying the condition of a representative sample of light fittings. Reporting on any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician on the property being surveyed should be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend that an electrical system check is carried out at least every 10 years (or every 5 if renting out).

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller's agent said there is a danger of dusty asbestos wallpaper concealed in the home. What is asbestos and are there any risks?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials such as central heating flues.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has characteristic fire retarding properties, it may be found in garage roofs. Technically all forms are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful however, not to displace it and professional advice must be taken immediately. You should not try to handle it yourself.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos on a survey. However they will report on possible asbestos risks and will offer advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the home buyers survey consider water damage?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and owning a property in Hayle in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. A flood warning service, with regular updates, is operated by the Environment Agency.

Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including seepage through walls. The house survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
