HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Timperley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap however it does offer comprehensive details of the Timperley property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Timperley Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To be able to determine the correct valuation your surveyor will take into account in depth understanding of the Timperley market and other things about the property for instance: accommodation. The surveyor will also consider materials used and use other assumptions like there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors don't factor in things like furnishings.

Additional local area conjectures, like services, are made in addition to Timperley environmental problems like Timperley planning proposals (e.g flight path), also being considered. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

What is subsidence? Is this a urgent risk, and what options are to available to remedy this?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. In addition, some homes are constructed from a range of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

Subsidence can sometimes be hard to detect because the issues which a Timperley surveyor will seek to find could comfortably be caused by other factors. Inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Your surveyor may suggest that you talk to an arborist to find out the best cause of action if trees or other plant life is the suspected cause.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the unmodernised property we are interested to buy, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit - will a surveyor write anything on the electrical system?

When carrying out a Timperley Homebuyer Report the home surveyor will report on the electrical system if it is suspected that they are in a less than satisfactory state.

This will include a non invasive (i.e. without undoing fittings) inspection check of exposed parts of the wiring or fusebox on top of things like verifying the condition of the fixed appliances like storage heaters or checking that the supplementary bonding is in the correct place. .

Examining the documentation from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.
