Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Aintree

    The RICS Homebuyer Report should be chosen if buying a property built from conventional building materials i.e. brick & tile, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Aintree

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Aintree) will also be conducted by a RICS qualified surveyor but is more exhaustive. Choose this when buying a non standard property such as stone wall buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Aintree

    This is an independent valuation . This is usually chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Aintree and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Aintree property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap but it will give comprehensive details of the Aintree property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

Is it necessary to get a full structural survey before investing in an extended regency house in Aintree?

Full Structural Surveys have a new title and are now named the Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if buying a non period unmodified Aintree house assembled from typical building materials i.e. brick and tile. The Building Survey would be the most appropriate survey to choose in relation to the property mentioned. Once a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the surveyor's formal report is supplied to the purchaser providing any crucial details about the construction of the property. Be aware that some survey no go areas are integral with the survey because a surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) force or open up the fabric of the house nor can he/she inspect no ladder available for flat roofs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We have made an offer for a house with a converted attic in Aintree - Which issues relating to the roofing will be reported on when the survey is performed?

Aintree properties that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious damage to the roof. From the fascias to the collar beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Factors like being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.

House Prices

I intend to acquire a flat in Aintree, L9 for around £52, 775. What things will a Aintree RICS chartered surveyor take into account in the process of a professional valuation ?

Any number of issues that can impact on house prices ranging from noise to whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. You can try to set against values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties. The mean flat price registered between July and October in 2012 was £34, 975, which is £17, 800 less than the price being asked (£105, 518 was the blended house/flat average). Bechers Court, 125, Flat 5, Ormskirk Road, Liverpool, Sefton, Merseyside, L9 5AE a leasehold apartment recently sold for £34, 950 .

An impartial way for you to get an accurate home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard.

The chartered surveyor will go to the home in addition to factoring in the wealth of area issues that might affect house prices.
