HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Ardwick and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Ardwick property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Ardwick property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Scare stories about property pests are plentiful, it is tempting to treat signs of pests such as house longhorn beetle as minor annoyances. Regrettably, pests can be very expensive to resolve and put your health in danger. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for bug or other

pest issues may include insecticides or removal or excision of affected timber. Contact a specialist, e.g. Manchester City Council, Pest Control Services, Block C Hooper Street Depot, Hooper Street, Manchester, M12 6LA, or call 0161 234 5004, to discuss remedial options.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect can rainfall have on a home in Ardwick?

Regular rainfall is common in Ardwick and across the country, but the impact heavy rain can have on a structure is usually overlooked. If you have visited the property you intend to purchase in warm weather, issues may have been hidden. Signs that downspouts are under performing include spalling on walls around drainage.

The good news is that these defects are quite easy to remedy.However, the damage caused, where untreated or poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Defective door frame

For the Ardwick HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of an red light rating defects impacting 'E6 - Outside doors' ?

Outside doors are to be opened and closed where keys are available, but not forced open. Generally, the seal condition of double glazing is covered. Cracked door glass is one defect applicable to this section.

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. 'Red' defects may also need further investigation by a qualified specialist before a full assessment can be made.
