Which Property Survey should you choose?

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Blackpool) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this survey when buying a non standard property such as box frame construction or older properties.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Blackpool and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is basically the same the same survey.

If the Blackpool property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any an extension, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Blackpool property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're intending to buy in Blackpool. Is there a flood risk, and will the house surveyor check for any water damage?

Heavy rain, overflowing waterways, tidal activity and poor drainage could all cause major flood damage, and owning a home in Blackpool in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a home in Blackpool, such as via patio doors.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect home in Blackpool enables the chartered surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

House Prices

I want to acquire a property in FY3 for around £100, 887. What things does a Blackpool RICS chartered surveyor allow for when conducting a professional valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on property values from state (of neglect) of exterior to defects in the lease. It is useful to set against house prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £90, 787, which is £10, 100 less than the asking price. The house/flat average was £92, 797. 19, South Park Drive, Blackpool, Blackpool, Blackpool, FY3 9PZ a detached property sold for £168, 950 .

The only way for you to get an accurate and professional property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as standard. A RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Building Surveys on houses

Is it the right choice to get a full structural survey before purchasing an abandoned forties cottage in Blackpool?

Structural surveys have been renamed as Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a mid century or later Blackpool house made out of conventional construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is the most relevant type of survey for the house mentioned. Around 3 days following a thorough survey of all accessible areas a written report (digital and written copy) will be emailed (pdf format) and posted to the buyer summarising any relevant advice on the materials used for the construction of the house. There are a few limitations with any survey because a local surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Blackpool property such as removing roof space contents.
