HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Oldham and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same.

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

If you intend to do any alterations on the property, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This option is less cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Oldham property's condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Oldham. Is there a flood risk, and will the residential surveyor investigate any flooding?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come.

As with many aspects of home ownership, flood prevention is better (and cheaper) than a cure. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. correctly installed window and door frames. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when buying a maisonette next to Higher Hills Farm Inert Landfill near Grasscroft and landfill sites generally

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes e.g. non-hazardous waste material disposal. A huge number of sites affect many thousands of people throughout the UK including Oldham. Worries might include chemicals like dioxins .

Surveyors will consider any structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your lawyer will conduct environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Oldham Local Authority and advise you .

House Prices

I would like to acquire a detached property in Oldham, OL1, being marketed for £95, 887. What things does a surveyor take into account when carrying out a Home Survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect the price of property from kerb appeal to the size of the garden. As an indicator, one can try to analyse house values recorded in Oldham for similar properties.

The average house price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £103, 487, which is £7, 600 more than the asking price. The combined house/flat average was £100, 621. 6, Stoneclough Mews, Oldham, Oldham, Greater Manchester, OL1 2LY a detached house sold for £116, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as standard. Your chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

A professional local surveyor will actually visit the house as well as factoring in all other location variables that have a bearing on values.
