HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Prescot and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same.

If the Prescot property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension on the Prescot property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Prescot property's general condition along with advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Chimney stacks

On a Prescot HomeBuyer Report, what might a an red light rating mean for chimney stacks?

Severe defects impacting the residence are indicated with a 'red' condition rating of 3. Such issues can have a significant impact on a Prescot property's value. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. A 'traffic light' system of colour coding is used to confirm the severity of defects uncovered during the

survey. One example would be no chimney liner. Elements of the property reviewed by Section E are inspected visually where appropriate.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it worth paying a bit more money for a full structural survey for a maisonette ?

The Building Survey has now superseded the Structural Survey following its new title in 2010 by RICS. If purchasing an unusual home like a dilapidated Prescot house, Building Survey is now the best property survey to get a surveyor to do. After a thorough site survey of any accessible parts of the house, a formal written report will be sent to the client giving thorough and crucial details on the condition of the house. There are a few limitations with any survey as the surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Prescot building, an example being lifting up fitted carpets.

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a property next to a rubbish dump

Landfill Sites come in many shapes and sizes including hazardous refuse. Understandably, no one wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Concerns might include leaking underground tanks from petrol stations for example .

Prescot surveyors will consider any structural problems connected with the landfill. Your conveyancer will commission environmental searches of the Landmark databases in addition to Knowsley Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
