Which Property Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Stalybridge

    A RICS Homebuyer Report should be selected when you are buying a home built from standard materials such as brick and tile, in reasonable repair and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Stalybridge

    A Building Survey (once known as a Full Structural Survey in Stalybridge) is also conducted by a MRICS/FRICS qualified surveyor but is more thorough. Opt for this when buying a non standard property such as box frame construction or older homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Stalybridge

    This is an independent valuation of the property. This report is usually chosen by mortgage free buyers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Stalybridge and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Stalybridge property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make significant alterations, you should you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Stalybridge property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

A home we intend to buy is built on clay soil. Will the Building Survey consider this?

Surveyors handle more questions relating to subsidence than any other topic, and clay soil is a major contributing factor to the problem. Subsidence is a major concern, but there are others, including shrinking of clay soil. Clay soil is naturally lower in volume, and will compact over several months in the case of new-builds. This settlement is predictable and necessary - the real concern is contraction in clay soil caused by changes in the local water table. For example, cracked plaster may be benign, or a clue prompting a more thorough investigation. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the home will be considered.

House Prices

I am going to acquire a property in SK15. The asking price is £103, 525. What things will a Stalybridge qualified surveyor consider on a property valuation report ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect the price of property from the amount of service charges payable to whether there is a flying freehold. It often helps to analyse flat prices achieved in the nearby area for comparable properties. The average flat price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £86, 125, which is £17, 400 less than the amount you are paying (£137, 371 was the blended house/flat average). Pattern House, 509, Castle Street, Stalybridge, Tameside, Greater Manchester, SK15 1AP a new build leasehold flat recently sold for £67, 499 .

In order to get a formal house valuation is with a Homebuyer Report in Stalybridge which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. Your local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Conservation area

Are there any issues we would need to check out when intending to buy a converted house in Stalybridge in a conservation area?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas in the UK that are designated and monitored by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Stalybridge need to possess local knowledge of local issues and any relation they have on the property. Property Prices will likely be inflated which is down to conservation areas being unspoilt. However a large number have fallen into a poor state e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors will advise you whether the property is/might be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out as part of the legal process. Out of keeping developments to the property will also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your legal representative.
