Home Buyers Survey in Toddington

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Toddington and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Toddington property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Toddington property's state of repair as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there is a danger of flaky asbestos roof tiles in existence at the building. What are the issues with asbestos, what are the remedial options and does the HomeBuyer report cover this?

Asbestos is a pernicious fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and may be in building materials including cement.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good sound absorption properties, it may be found in ceilings.

All forms are ultimately deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to disturb the asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible.

Surveyors do not test for asbestos as part of the survey. Your Toddington surveyor should report on the risk of asbestos and should recommend relevant tests.

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor examine the state of repair of the gas appliances?

Your RICS surveyor will visually check the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The surveyor will look at gas (and oil heaters) as part of the survey, in addition to gas associated installations e.g. fireplaces. Your Toddington chartered surveyor won't remove the fittings and he or she won't do any tests whatsoever on the appliances or system. Gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Damaged Render

What will the Toddington Surveyor look out for on a stucco coated regency home in Toddington that I intend to purchase.

Stucco is actually just dense render. Usually stucco is layered over brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. The coating is very grand in appearance and is was often applied to Georgian buildings. it can be problematic and Toddington surveyors sometimes detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when movement of the underlying wall leads to cracks. Other potential problems may result from the pressure from heavy loads such as cracking under concrete slate roofs. Re-coating problems with stucco may be difficult and costly as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and a "reinstatement cost" included in the cost of the survey. To ascertain the valuation the valuer will call upon local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and use other assumptions such as no significant problems.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any compromising legal problems for example Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Advice should be sought from your legal representative.

Additional local Toddington area conjectures, like problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like local mining issues, also being considered.
