HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Stretford and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Stretford property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Stretford property's state of repair in addition to information on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1810s home with stone walls. What should we look in to, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Purchasers in Stretford should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Issues including mould affect many stone-walled homes in Stretford. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Guidelines for better stone wall upkeep include clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the period property I am intending to purchase, it looked like there was no RCD on the fuse board , does a Stretford Homebuyer Report advise the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Home Survey in Stretford the home surveyor should usually make a note on the state of the electrics if it is obvious that they are in a hazardous state. A Surveyor should also things like verifying the type of any electrical fittings in shower rooms. Verifying the location of the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical wiring conducted by an electrician should be part of the Homebuyer report in Stretford.
