HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Sonning Common and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Sonning Common property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there might be an asbestos tank in the flat. Which types of asbestos are a concern and can it be handled easily?

Asbestos is a harmful material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. pipe lagging.

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

All forms (including white) are pernicious and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay.

Surveyors cannot test for asbestos on a survey. They will report on potential asbestos during the Sonning Common survey and will suggest further investigation.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor look into the safety of the gas flues?

The RICS surveyor will visually examine any accessible parts of the gas system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes as part of the survey, as well as gas related installations, for instance the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. A Sonning Common RICS surveyor won't remove any external fittings and will not do any tests on the appliances or system. Gas can be dangerous, should you have any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.
