HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Chorlton and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Chorlton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make any major works, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Chorlton property's general condition as well as advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Chorlton House Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Conservation area

Will there be any things I would need to look into if buying a period property in Chorlton near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have local knowledge of relevant local issues and any connection they have with the property and its value. The price of property is generally more than prices outside the area as a result of them being preserved.

Property surveyors will inform you if the property is possibly so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Chorlton Homebuyer Report will suggest additional due diligence and enquiries are raised during the legal process. Unsympathetic changes to the property should be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your lawyer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of pests in the closet - Is a Property Survey advisable?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Chorlton home may not be raised during the conveyancing. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, for example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to a serious infestation can include traps. If you believe lice, or any pest, may be present, request that your property surveyor pay close attention during the survey.

Landfill site near home

What should I be concerned about when purchasing a building in the region a rubbish tip

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes e.g. domestic rubbish disposal. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live under 2km away from one). Worries might include complex organic chemicals .

Homebuyer reports in Chorlton will examine structural issues resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will commission conveyancing searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Cheshire East Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
