Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Heaton Moor

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if planning to buy a home constructed from conventional building materials such as tile & brick, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Heaton Moor

    A Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Heaton Moor) is also carried out by a MRICS/FRICS surveyor but is more thorough. Choose this for non standard e.g. stone wall buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Heaton Moor

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This is often chosen by mortgage free purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Heaton Moor and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Heaton Moor property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Heaton Moor property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We believe this property is located in a low lying area. Is there a major flood risk? Would our surveyor check any flood damage, or whether flooding has affected nearby homes?

Heavy rain, drains blocked with sewage or soil and burst pipes could all cause major floods. Both buyers and home owners in areas at risk of flooding are right to be worried. It is strongly recommended that proper precautions are taken, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Section J of the survey report contains details,

where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the property or on adjacent sites. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a property survey if the surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with Kentish Rag stone walls. What problems should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Hall Dale Sandstone to Westwood Ground Limestone. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include mould. Bear in mind that some defects will affect regular or irregularly cut stone equally, whereas others will not, and may require a local surveyors expertise to identify. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified. Common guidance may include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 16th Century converted stable in Heaton Moor. What consequences will the rafter roof have on upkeep?

For houses in Heaton Moor built before the 20th Century, age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Heaton Moor houses built with traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Heaton Moor listed buildings.
