HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Runcorn property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations on the Runcorn property, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give exhaustive analysis of the Runcorn property's state of repair along with information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to acquire a detached property in Runcorn, WA7, being marketed for £100, 313. What things does a surveyor consider on a RICS valuation ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from house prices from whether correct consents are in place to defects in the lease. It may help to compare with the prices of house registered at the Land Registry for similar properties.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £122, 813, which is £22, 500 more than the price you are intending to pay. 10, Heathfield Gardens, Runcorn, Halton, Halton, WA7 4BF a detached property sold for £349, 995 .

The most accurate way to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default. Your surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Runcorn partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for purchasers? What should we look in to?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including spalling brick. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include spalling brick.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregularly built walls as stones are less likely to come loose or the mortar to decay. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include resolution of underlying problems, like damp, before work on the wall starts.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. INEOS Enterprises Ltd, Po Box 9, Runcorn Site Hq, South Parade, Runcorn, Cheshire, WA7 7JE, quarrying Salt, for details. Call 01928 516512 for more information.

Building Surveys on houses

I am acquiring a converted Victorian detached property, is it best to upgrade to a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys are now known Building Surveys. If you are buying an unconventional property such as a dilapidated house in Runcorn, this is now the best survey to purchase. Usually within 2 to 3 days after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the house a written report (pdf and written copy) will be posted to you specifying comprehensive and crucial insight on the state of repair of the house.

There are certain no go areas with a property survey insofar as a qualified surveyor is not able to open up the fabric of the of the Runcorn house - such as removing the contents of cupboards.
