HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Heaton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same survey.

If the Heaton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications, you should you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Heaton property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled properties generate lots of maintenance costs for buyers? Are there specific matters to consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Purchasers in Heaton should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include deteriorating mortar. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

The sheer breadth of varying stone materials can make it difficult for purchasers to correctly identify the particular stone used in the building of a home. Quarries in Heaton should be able to supply local stone.

Conservation area

Will there be any potential pitfalls we would need to be wary of if buying a flat in Heaton near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local council. Surveyors in Heaton need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and the relation they have on the home and its value. Prices is typically inflated as a result of the areas being unspoilt.

RICS surveyors can be expected to report whether the property looks like it may be so designated and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unconsented modifications to the property should be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal adviser.

House Prices

I am going to acquire a house in Heaton. What considerations will a Heaton RICS surveyor take into account when conducting a home buyers survey ?

Any number of issues that can add to or subtract from the price of property from the legality of extensions to whether the garden is overlooked. .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report in Heaton which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. A local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

The chartered surveyor should actually visit the property as well as considering the countless location variables that can impact on property values.
