HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Atherton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Atherton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Atherton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Cotswold stone-built homes be difficult to repair. What related issues must we watch out for, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Damp proof course issues can often cause problems for homes in Atherton with stone walls. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Atherton should be able to supply local stone.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Astley Sand and Aggregates, Morleys Hall Quarry, Astley, Manchester, M29 7EW for details. Call 01942 603764 for more information.

To source a specific stone material, speak to a Atherton specialist, including North West Fireplace Centre Ltd of 2A Salford Rd, Bolton, BL5 1BL.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to buy a house in Atherton, does the RICS surveyor search for possible flooding, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

Soil-clogged drainage, rain and overflowing waterways can all result in extensive flood damage, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. In addition, the property survey may offer suggestions for better flood defences.The property survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. The home surveyor may ask the vendor or agent if the home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor examine the state of repair of the gas mains supply?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the system. This will include the location of the meter where relevant, in addition to gas connected fixtures for example - associated asbestos. The external fittings will not however be taken off. The system will not be tested. Needless to say, gas is potentially deadly, if you have any worries about gas or if you smell gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Greater Manchester based local firms include Norman Hurst of 4 Laxey Avenue, Atherton, Manchester, Lancashire Tel. 07979707925 and John Hall Plumbing & Heating of 1 Luton Grove, Atherton, Manchester Tel. 01942895714.

Gas regulations require that all landlords are obligated to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply are harsh .
