Home Buyers Survey in Rhiwbina

HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Rhiwbina and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Rhiwbina property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it will give comprehensive details of the Rhiwbina property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I am concerned that there is asbestos pipe lagging insulation being found in property. What is asbestos, is it hazardous, can it be removed and What should we do?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material. Some types were commonly found in the building materials for example ceilings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceiling material. Technically all forms including white are ultimately carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to disturb it and professional advice must be taken urgently.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Rhiwbina survey. However, surveyors will note suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor inspect the state of repair of the gas heaters?

Yes. The RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include whether the mains is connected for example, in addition to gas related fixtures e.g. balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. The Rhiwbina local surveyor won't remove the external fittings or housings nor will they carry out any tests on the system. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, if you have any worries relating to gas installations, call an engineer.

House Prices

There is a detached house close to CF14 for £212, 938. What will a Rhiwbina surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Rhiwbina on a Home Survey ?

A professional qualified surveyor will always go to the home as well as factoring in the large variety of things that can impact on values.
