HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Swinton and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Swinton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer an in-depth analysis of the Swinton property's condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get a Swinton House Survey Quote on our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damaged Render

What will my Chartered Surveyor consider on a smooth stucco coated Victorian semi detached home in Swinton.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just smooth type of render. Commonly it is layered over brick hardens to a smooth and even finish. The effect is very attractive and is common on some Victorian and Georgian homes for example. It used to have lime in it in addition to animal fibres to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Swinton can detail potentially expensive to remedy problems such as trapped water leading to the surface falling away

Another example of problems associated with stucco might include attack from salts derived from wet brickwork. Re-covering Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming rarer.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems I would need to check on if purchasing a period property in Swinton near a conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in the UK which are governed by the local council. Swinton surveyors need to possess local knowledge of local area issues and the relation may have with the property and its value. House prices tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them being preserved.

Surveyors can be expected to note if the planned purchase might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved adjustments to the property will also be reported, however these should be concern for your legal adviser. Mary Monson Solicitors are based in 87 Chorley Road, Salford, Greater Manchester, M27 4AA might be happy to give you some pointers. Tel: 0161 794 0088

Traditionally built property

What should we consider when purchasing older property in Swinton? What should be budgeted for regular maintenance?

Many buyers in Swinton would like to own a home with character, such as a cottage. The age of a structure, however, can occasionally give buyers second thoughts, and Properties showcasing traditional methods can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as suitable timber, . If you are uncertain, speak to the surveyor for more detail.
