HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Cheetham Hill and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Cheetham Hill property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works on the Cheetham Hill property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Cheetham Hill property's general condition as well as information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservation area

Are there any problems I would be advised to look into when purchasing a converted flat in Cheetham Hill in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by local authorities. Your surveyor need to possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and the effect may have with the building and its value. House prices will be higher because of them being unspoilt. However many areas have fallen into a poor state e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

RICS surveyors are expected note if the property is possibly is so classified and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the conveyancing process. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority

approval will also be noted but these are really more a investigated by the solicitor. Joan Ferguson & Co are a local firm situated at 481 Cheetham Hill Road, Manchester, Greater Manchester, M8 9LR might be able help you with further information. Tel: 0161 795 2869

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Cheetham Hill home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

Cheetham Hill Homebuyer Reports a valuation and also a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. In order to determine an accurate estimate of the value of the building the surveyor will pair awareness of the Cheetham Hill property market and other considerations relating to the property e.g. size Your Cheetham Hill surveyor will also consider construction type and use key assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water.

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 area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to any Cheetham Hill environmental issues like flood plains, also being considered.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is heavy rain an issue in Cheetham Hill? And could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of local property, I find it strange that this issue is usually overlooked by property buyers.

Signs that drainage systems are under performing include spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts, and may lead to penetrating damp. Whether buying in Cheetham Hill or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair. If not unblocked on a regular basis, however, the damage can be very costly and time-consuming to remedy.
