HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Cheetham and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Cheetham property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Cheetham property's state of repair and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Cheetham Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an older converted stable in Cheetham. Will repairs costs be higher?

Many buyers plan to buy a house with personality, like a coach house or converted stable. For houses in Cheetham built before the 20th Century, age, however, can be problematic. Cheetham property employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a drain to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. .

Construction materials, such as original bricks, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Cheetham's conservation areas.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it best to choose a full structural survey prior to purchasing a shabby, fifties basement apartment near Cheetham?

Building Survey has now superseded the Full Structural Survey following its reclassification some time ago by RICS. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need for a non period Cheetham property made out of standard construction materials. A Building Survey would be the most suitable survey to choose for the apartment described. Two to three days after the surveyor has carried out a thorough survey of the accessible parts a written report (pdf and written copy) will be sent to you giving in depth and notable information concerning the construction materials used on the house.

There will be several limitations with any survey insofar as your surveyor will not be able to (unless owners consent provided) open up the fabric of the of the Cheetham apartment e.g. lifting up floor coverings.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We have learnt that Cheetham properties built on clay soil can experience problems. Can the Cheetham Building Survey consider this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

Without due care and attention, foundations dug into clay soil can quickly suffer adverse affects, with subsidence being a common example. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change. Signs like sticking doors can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. Steps like ensuring that the ground level declines away from the house can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted. If soil moisture levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is essential. Subsidence and heave can be caused by a general increase or decrease in moisture, but isolated patches of wet and dry can just as easily warp foundations, putting them under even greater pressure.
