    The RICS Homebuyer Report is the best choice if purchasing a home constructed from conventional materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable order and less than 100 years old.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hulme and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hulme property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Hulme property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a chartered surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas appliances?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will locate and visually survey any easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the condition of the meter at the home, as well as gas related fixtures e.g. flue/chimney maintenance. Any gas fittings won't however be taken off. The system won't be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas can be dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What effect should wet conditions have on a home in Hulme? Will the property surveyor report on this? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

I find it odd that this issue is rarely considered properly by purchasers. If you have only visited the home in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Poor drainage can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

Luckily, drainage problems are generally easy to fix.However, the damage caused, where not unblocked on a regular basis, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about pests - What can we do?

Pests like lice may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Hulme.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can seriously reduce the value of a property. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, for example, silverfish are common in damp kitchens and bathrooms, but only appear at night, and can therefore be difficult to spot. Remedies to insect infestation can include professional cleaning and destruction of tainted materials. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
