HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cleator Moor and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Cleator Moor property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Cleator Moor property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick guidelines for upkeep, can the surveyor help?

Brick-built Cleator Moor converted property demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also be subject to several common problems. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact Moore & Smith for a repairs estimate at 01530 231831 or 259 Main St, Thornton, Coalville, LE67 1AJ.

A number of styles of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. When calculating the correct valuation your independent surveyor will pair area knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions such as the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions, like services, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like busy roads, also being considered.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Cleator Moor, and think we saw signs of an infestation in the bedrooms - Will the Property Survey investigate this?

Pests like vermin may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Cleator Moor.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can be costly to fix. Evidence may not be easy to find. As an example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to pest problems can include removal or excision of affected timber. The surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
