HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Irlam and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Irlam property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the Irlam property, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Irlam property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Irlam Home Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour warned us that access to the loft could be a problem. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is frequently addressed by property surveyors. Many properties can be hiding serious roofing woes, like wet rot. Any part of the roof or loft, such as tie beams, ought to be checked. The property surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Contact Everlast Flat Roofing Systems Ltd of 198a Liverpool Rd, Irlam, Manchester, M44 6FE on 0161-771 2305 for more information.

House Prices

I would like to acquire a property in M44. The vendor is asking £150, 111. What considerations will a Irlam RICS surveyor consider when carrying out a professional valuation ?

There are many factors which could affect house prices ranging from the amount of service charges payable to whether there are any conservation area infringements. You can try to compare with the prices of house recorded in Irlam for comparable properties.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £149, 811, which is £300 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average for houses and flats was £146, 852. 6, Roseway Avenue, Cadishead, Manchester, Salford, Greater Manchester, M44 5GJ a detached property was purchased for £174, 995 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme.

A professional RICS surveyor will attend the property as well as allowing for the multiple area influences that might affect property prices.

Timber damage by insect larvae

There may be an infestation at the property we're buying, but we are not certain - How do we investigate further?

Homes will often be free of major vermin. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. 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, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies to pest problems can include use of insecticides. If you believe wasps, or any pest, may be present, request that your chartered surveyor pay close attention during the survey. Speak to an expert, e.g. AVRO Pest Management, 102 Higher Road, Urmston, Manchester, M41 9AP on 0161 755 9774, for more detail.
