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?

Conservation area

Will there be any things we would be advised to be conscious of when purchasing a converted house in Timperley near a conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are nearly 10, 000 of designated conservation areas in the UK which are designated by local councils. Surveyors in Timperley need to possess knowledge of local factors and any effect may have on the home and its value. The price of property tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of them resisting change. However many areas have fallen into a state of neglect e.g. badly maintained and potholed roads and pavements

Surveyors will advise you if the house might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Timperley Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are raised during the conveyancing process. Out of keeping changes that do not have Local Authority

approval should be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative.

House Prices

We are planning to be buying a flat in Timperley (WA14) for £134, 660. What will the Timperley chartered surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Timperley during a professional valuation ?

Any number of issues that can affect property values for instance the square footage or the internal layout. It often helps to put side by side flat prices recorded in the same area for comparable properties. The average flat price paid between July and October in 2012 was £124, 860, which is £9, 800 less than the price being asked. The combined house/flat average was £224, 190. 23, Flat 5, Draybank Road, Broadheath, Altrincham, Trafford, Greater Manchester, WA14 5EH was purchased for £121, 995 .

The most cost effective way for you to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

The chartered surveyor should attend the site in addition to considering the multiple area issues that can affect property prices.

Gas flame

Will a Timperley surveyor check the safety of the gas flues?

Your surveyor will locate and visually look at any accessible parts of the system. This will include the routing of any gas pipes at the building, as well as gas connected appliances or installations such as flue/chimney maintenance. Your Timperley chartered surveyor won't remove the gas fittings and he or she won't carry out any tests whatsoever on the serviceability of the system. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
