Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Rainhill

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if you are buying a property made of standard materials such as brick & tile, not dilapidated and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    The Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Rainhill) is also conducted by a RICS surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this for non standard e.g. cellared or older properties.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Rainhill

    This is an independent valuation . It is typically chosen by cash buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. matrimonial dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Rainhill and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Rainhill property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Rainhill property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When we visited a property we are planning to buy it appeared that there was no RCD on the fuse board , will a Rainhill Homebuyer Report write anything on the electrics?

When carrying out a Rainhill Building Survey a qualified surveyor will usually mention the electrics if it is suspected that the electrics are in a poor state. He or she is required to things like making sure that supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Looking at any evidence of any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician will form part of the Homebuyer report in Rainhill. A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by an electrician should be part of the survey.

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection Report need be completed every ten years (or every 5 if letting out). For local advice from a qualified electrician contact EHS , 17 Marina Av, St. Helens, WA9 3TA .

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor look for on a stipple rendered (stucco) Victorian house in Rainhill which we wish to buy.

Stucco is really just a kind of smooth solid render. Typically stucco is applied to underlying brick hardens to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco render is very attractive and is/was often found on Victorian homes. It is almost exactly the same as mortar in its nature. It used to contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as plant fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Surveyors frequently detail potentially expensive to remedy problems which might include trapped water resulting in internal damp problems

Another example of problems may be when the stucco has been taken down to ground level bypassing the Damp Proof Course. Re-coating problems can be dear as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting rarer.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a house in WA8 for around £197, 786. What things does a Rainhill RICS surveyor allow for on a home buyers survey ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect house prices from state of repair of the property to the over all desirability of the street. As an indicator, one can try to put side by side values recorded in Rainhill for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £176, 186, which is £21, 600 less than the selling price. 10, Hanging Birches, Widnes, Halton, Halton, WA8 5BJ a detached home sold for £313, 711 .

The most reliable way to get a formal property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. A chartered surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

The qualified RICS surveyor will always attend the property in addition to considering the long list of influences that might affect the value of property.
