Home Buyers Survey in Kingsland

HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kingsland and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Kingsland property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, you should you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Kingsland property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Will the chartered surveyor search for indications of flooding damage?

The Law Society estimate that 2.2m homes are exposed to floods. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a home survey will inform your decision. The Environment Agency maintain a flood risk alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flood water can enter a home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. The home survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The property surveyor may ask the agent if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

According to the Environment Agency, no recent flood alerts were found for Kingsland.

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor report on the safety of the gas appliances?

A qualified RICS surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the system. This will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) at the property, as well as gas related fittings e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The Kingsland RICS surveyor won't remove fittings nor will they run any tests on the appliances or system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly and if there are any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.

Gas regulations require landlords must to complete appliance and installation inspections annually. Non compliance penalties are harsh .

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned there is a risk of powdery brown asbestos walls situated in the property. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials for example cooker insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in stove insulation.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to remove it and professional advice should be sought immediately.

Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your Kingsland surveyor should mention possible asbestos and will suggest further investigation.

Building Surveys on houses

Should I obtain the full structural survey when looking into a dilapidated thirties home in Kingsland as an alternative to a HomeBuyer Report?

Often referred to as a Structural Survey, it is no longer available as it has been reclassified by RICS and the correct term is now the Building Survey. If you are purchasing an unconventional home such as an older house, the Building Survey is now the most suitable RICS survey to get. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if investigating a mid century or later unmodified house built out of normal construction materials and methods. Subsequent to a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts, the surveyor's formal report is posted to the prospective purchaser giving any crucial advice on the construction of the house. There are certain limitations with any residential survey insofar as a surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Kingsland property e.g. lifting up fitted carpets.
