Home Buyers Survey in Lancing

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Lancing and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Lancing property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Lancing property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor report on the condition of the gas supply?

Your will visually inspect the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the routing of any gas pipes for example, in addition to gas connected gas fittings in the home, for instance fireplaces. A Lancing qualified surveyor won't remove the fittings and surveyors are not qualified to carry out any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

The regulations stipulate that all landlords have to conduct appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the house I am intending to purchase, the agent said that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox, does a the Lancing surveyor advise the wiring and electrical system?

During a Home Buyers Survey in Lancing the RICS surveyor should usually mention the condition of the electrics if it is suspected that they are in an unsafe state of repair. A Surveyor is trained to report on potential areas for concern such as verifying the condition of any fitted appliances like water heaters or checking the condition of visible wiring.

Verifying the existence of any documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will usually be part of the Homebuyer report in Lancing.

Landfill site near home

What should I be worried about if buying a home in the region a landfill site

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous waste material. Of course nobody would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Risks include chemicals like dioxins. Health issues for example cancer have been linked to landfill sites .

Surveys in Lancing will flag up any structural defects connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases as well as Adur Local Authority and give you the results of the search .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there might be painted over asbestos ceilings being found in house. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials for example garage roofs.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in shed roofs.

All forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure. If discovered, one must be careful never to displace it and expert advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos during a Lancing building survey. Your Lancing surveyor should note possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.
