Home Buyers Survey in Romiley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Romiley and which is cheaper?

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

If the Romiley property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any major works on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does offer comprehensive details of the Romiley property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Romiley Home Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Gas flame

Does a RICS chartered surveyor go into detail on the safety of the gas installations?

A will locate and visually survey the accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes where relevant, in addition to gas affiliated appliances, for instance balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. However, the Romiley local surveyor won't remove the external fittings and won't do any tests on the gas system. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially deadly, if you have any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Romiley based gas engineers include ASAPlumbing of 17, Rutland Street, Hyde, Cheshire Tel. 0808 166 2941 and Hawksworth Engineering Solutions of 3 Rabbit Lane, Mottram, Hyde Tel. 07729199207.

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 require that all landlords are obligated to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines or imprisonment .

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a danger of an asbestos fireplace at the house. What is asbestos, what are the risks and can it be treated?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic fibrous substance. Some types are found in the building materials such as flooring materials.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance properties, it may be found in fireplace.

All forms are ultimately dangerous and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered not to break it and expert advice must be taken without delay. You should not endeavour to handle it yourself. Surveyors will not confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Your Romiley surveyor should report on possible asbestos and will suggest experts are consulted.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect will damp weather have on a building? Where there is damage, what should we do?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that rainfall and the effect it can have on your property are rarely paid due attention. If you have only been to the new home in warm weather, problems are unlikely to be visible. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. This can lead to cracked foundations and subsidence.

These issues are, generally speaking, straightforward to resolve for a reasonable cost. However, if the drains are not unblocked on a regular basis, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.
