HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Gorton and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Gorton property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Gorton property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

If in doubt get a Gorton Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Gorton surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a "reinstatement cost" as part of the survey. To work out the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will take into account local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. general condition Your Gorton surveyor will also consider certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site.

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 Gorton conjectures, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to any Gorton environmental concerns like local Gorton industrial considerations, also being considered.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a property - Is a Full Structural Survey advisable?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to pests can include chemical treatment. The RICS 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.
