HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Blackley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Blackley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Blackley property's condition as well as information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas installations?

Your RICS surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). Should there be any external fittings or housings they won't be taken off. Of course, gas can be dangerous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Damaged Render

What will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Blackley which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick hardens to an even finish. The finish is very attractive and is found on Victorian and Regency houses. It is very like plaster and mortar. it can be prone to defect and Blackley Home Buyers Suveys commonly show potentially expensive to remedy problems for instance when it is exposed to driving rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Resolving Stucco problems can be costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a coast house in Blackley. What consequences will the timber frame have on upkeep?

Vernacular, or traditional, architecture can concern buyers. Houses built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to upkeep. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. This can result in higher ongoing expenses. Speak to your RICS surveyor for more information.
