HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Heywood and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same.

If the Heywood property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Heywood property's condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Will my survey give a property valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as standard. To estimate the value of the property your chartered surveyor will take into account awareness of the Heywood property market as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: size Surveyors also examine style of architecture and will use other assumptions like there being no serious defects.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Heywood area assumptions, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like brine mining activity, also being considered.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a property with Bath stone walls. Which problems should we consider?

There are many of defects and issues associated with stone-built property. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to properties, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decorative elements. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes repointing of loose or crumbling mortar.

If you are sourcing a particular stone, get in touch with a local firm, including Phoenix Fires, Old Phoenix Brewery, Green Lane, Heywood, OL10 2EP.

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to check on if purchasing a flat in Heywood in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are thousands official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess relevant knowledge of relevant local considerations and the connection they have with the property and its value. House prices are typically greater which is down to the areas being unspoilt. However many conservation areas are falling into a state of neglect for example - the removal front garden walls

Surveyors are expected inform you if the property is or might be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval may also be reported, however these should be investigated by the lawyer. Isherwood & Hose are based in 6 Market Street, Rochdale, Greater Manchester, OL10 4NB should be prepared to advise further. Tel: 1706621311
