HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Ashton Under Lyne and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Ashton Under Lyne property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Ashton Under Lyne property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Ashton Under Lyne home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Ashton Under Lyne property will include a surveyor valuation as well as a reinstatement cost. To be able to determine the property's value the valuer will refer to local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. square metres. Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and will use key assumptions such as there being no major problems.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of parking or connection to sewers, are made in addition to any environmental problems like the area being prone to flooding, which will also be factored in.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this Tudor house appears to have several cracks - what should we do? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Ashton Under Lyne brick-walled residential property can suffer from a number of issues. For example, thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs and may require immediate attention. Evans Brickwork should be able to assist with a maintenance quote. Contact them at 020 8866 9388 or 17 Malpas Drive, Pinner, HA5 1DG.

Brick-constructed property feature in construction throughout Ashton Under Lyne, leading to a broad range of techniques. For example, common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Substandard guttering

In a Ashton Under Lyne HomeBuyer Report, what are the usual an red light rating defects affecting rainwater pipes and gutters?

Serious concerns are marked as condition rating 3. In some cases, such a rating may indicate further expert opinion is needed before an accurate statement can be given. The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Ashton Under Lyne are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give property purchasers a clear understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey.

For a Ashton Under Lyne house, one issue is missing downspouts. External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere combined system problems.
