HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Halewood and which is cheaper?

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

If the Halewood property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Halewood property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I am going to buy a detached property in L26, being marketed for £158, 983. What things does a Halewood qualified surveyor allow for when carrying out a survey ?

There is a vast array of things that can affect the price of property ranging from the tenure to the property's proximity to a conservation area. It is useful to compare with values registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £137, 583, which is £21, 400 less than the selling price. 8, Hatherton Grove, Liverpool, Knowsley, Merseyside, L26 9YQ a detached property was purchased for £130, 000 .

The most accurate way for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as an inclusive part. A RICS chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Halewood Surveys include a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as reconstructing a boundary wall)

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and also a Reinstatement Cost. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will take into account awareness of the Halewood property market and other things about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon key assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as gas.

A Building Survey does not 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.

Additional local Halewood area assumptions, for example problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant local environmental problems like railways, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Halewood. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. Will access to the house's roof be difficult to arrange?

This is a common concern for property purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Homes throughout Halewood can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems, such as torn or punctured damp-proofing. From purlins to valley gutters, all aspects of the roof must be reviewed. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

The expense of asbestos cement removal, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A builder with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.
