HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Baguley and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Baguley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Baguley property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

When planning to buy in Baguley, should we be anxious about a flood risk, and will the Baguley surveyor search for water damage, or whether flooding has affected other properties?

It is estimated that over two million houses and flats are at a high risk of flooding, and the value of a property can decrease if in an exposed area, even if it has never flooded. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger. In addition, the home survey may advise on needed maintenance.Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect residence enables the chartered surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The chartered

surveyor may ask the current owner if the residence has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled houses in Baguley cause problems for the buyer? Which major issues should we consider?

There are many of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. 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. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Repair advice often includes removal of invasive plants, such as ivy.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a house in Baguley but are worried about insects. What can we do?

Homes in Baguley are not usually impacted by serious cases of pest problems, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. An affected building may not always be easy to identify, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. As some pest problems can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange. If you require more information, contact a local firm, like Airline Services, Canberra House, Robeson Way, Sharston Green Business Park, Manchester, M22 4SX, or call them on 0161 495 6947.
