HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Burnage and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Burnage property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the Burnage property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Burnage property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a Reinstatement Cost included in the cost of the survey. To properly appraise an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will take into account area knowledge and other considerations about the property for instance: number of bedrooms The RICS surveyor will also consider materials used and make certain other assumptions such as it is connected to mains services.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Burnage assumptions, for example service connections, are made as well as any significant Burnage environmental concerns like flightpaths, which will also be factored in.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We noticed a gap below the skirting board in the cellar, is this subsidence? What subsidence-related matters will the RICS Surveyor look into?

Movement of a home on a structural level is called subsidence. Where the home is of very recent construction, the builder will usually return to a new home after some months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Cracks that appear without warning may be a strong indication of subsidence. Inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Restoration work cannot begin until the original source of the movement is found.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.

Landfill site near home

What should I be wary of when buying a maisonette next to a rubbish landfill

Landfill Sites take many forms including domestic refuse disposal. Understandably, no one really wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries include hazardous chemicals. Potential health problems such as gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Burnage surveyors will examine structural issues resulting from the site. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the Landmark data sets as well as Manchester Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
