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 .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing a 19th Century coast house. What impact will the residence's age have on regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Atherton plan to buy a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. A building's age, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Atherton property featuring traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. If you plan to make alterations to a period home, discuss options with the property surveyor for more detail.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we need to be conscious of if intending to buy a period property in Atherton in a conservation area?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local authority. Your surveyor must have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and the relation they have with the building. The value of homes is usually higher because of them retaining original features. However a growing number are falling into shoddy condition for example - badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Property surveyors are expected note if the house looks to be is designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Atherton Homebuyer Report will recommend the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented extensions to the property may also be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor. Swift Lawyers Ltd are a local firm situated at 123 Market Street, Wigan, Greater Manchester, M46 0DF should be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 0191 886 825

Roof defects identified during a survey

Poor roof maintenance has created issues for us in the old property, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a property surveyor investigate during the survey?

Residences in Atherton that are otherwise ideal could feature roofing woes. From sheathing to valley gutters, every part of the roof must be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

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. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a Atherton roofing contractor can provide one. Contact LDM Roofing of 36 Hansom Drive, Atherton, Manchester, M46 0SE on 07973 299640 to request an estimate.
