HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Maghull and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Maghull 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 carry out an extension on the Maghull property, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Maghull property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Chartered Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered regency house in Maghull.

Stucco is really a form of render. Typically it is layered over brick hardens to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The effect is highly attractive and is often found on Victorian properties. It is similar to plaster or mortar in its constituency. it can be prone to defect and Maghull Home Buyers Suveys frequently focus on any number of problems for example, when it is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems might result from the burden of heavy load such as cracking under the roof joists. Re-covering Stucco problems may be difficult and costly as craftsmen are becoming rarer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Maghull surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for site clearance) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Maghull building will include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost. When calculating the correct valuation your chartered surveyor will factor in local Maghull market factors and other factors about the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also examine construction methods and make certain key assumptions such as the property isn't on a land fill site. Surveyors will ignore things like furnishings e.g. carpets. It will also be assumed that there aren't any compromising legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). These will be investigated by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further Maghull conjectures, such as use of communal grounds or the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental concerns like local Maghull industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

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

Gas flame

Does the qualified RICS surveyor advise on the condition of the gas heaters?

A local surveyor will locate and visually check any easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include gas heaters (also LPG/oil/electric) for instance, in addition to gas connected installations for example - fixed external ventilation hearths. Any external fittings won't however be taken off. The gas system will not be tested in any way. Of course, gas can be unsafe, should there be any worries relating to gas installations, contact a gas safe engineer.
