HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Little Hulton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Little Hulton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Little Hulton property's condition in addition to advice on structural defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed the thirties house I intend to lease I saw that there is an old fuse board ; does Little Hulton survey go into detail on electrical defects?

When performing a Home Survey in Little Hulton your surveyor should remark on the state of the electrics if it looks like the electrics are in an unsafe condition. This will include an overview or check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the unconcealed sections of the wiring or fusebox and other areas like the condition miniature circuit breakers or reporting on the state of a representative sample of light fittings. Inspecting any documents from the most recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the Homebuyer report in Little Hulton. Inspecting any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report conducted by an electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Little Hulton .

The IEE suggest that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition need be completed

at least every 10 years (5 if renting out). We recommend you always get help on electrical testing - speak to M F Electrical Services , 4 Partington St, Worsley, Manchester, M28 2SY .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a surveyor valuation in addition to a Reinstatement Cost as standard. In order to determine the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will call upon knowledge of Little Hulton and other considerations relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also evaluate materials used and will draw upon other assumptions like there are no hazardous materials.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area conjectures, like services, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like Little Hulton planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The Fletton brick on this Victorian house has deteriorated - what should we do? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick Little Hulton flats will show signs of distinct issues, such as spalling. Your RICS surveyor will cover these in his report, with feedback. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Contact several local builders for quotes, including Snape M A of 112 Preston Old Rd, Freckleton, Preston, PR4 1HD on 01772 460419.

Little Hulton home purchasers may need to consider that range of techniques have been a feature of house construction in this country for 100s of years. One example is common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows.
