HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Heswall and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Heswall property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Heswall property's condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are planning to buy a home in Heswall and the seller has suggested that it has been partially constructed with Portland stone. Are there specific matters to consider?

Poor use of coating can often cause problems for property with stone walls. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. 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. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as careful removal of nearby trees and plants. Be careful not to pull these up by the roots, as they could already be intertwined with the wall's foundations, which will cause more damage. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

English Heritage

We are planning to buy a home close to Irby Hall Moated Site , will this affect the property's value?

Irby Hall Moated Site is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can certainly add to the desirability of an area. Examples of other local sites of importance are Wirral.. A surveyor will include all regional factors when carrying out the home buyers survey in Heswall. See the English Heritage website for further details on Irby Hall Moated Site.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are purchasing an old farmstead. What consequences will the house's rafter roof have on maintenance?

Many purchasers have looked at purchasing a unique or characterful property. Older construction methods and materials, however, can sometimes be an issue. Houses constructed with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that specialist knowledge is necessary. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced. This can increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.
