HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Walkden and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Walkden property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works on the Walkden property, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Walkden property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about pests in the home in Walkden we plan to buy. Should we get a property surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. This concern should be taken seriously. An affected building may not always be easy to identify.

For example, irritating cluster flies will hibernate in Autumn, but will return every year without treatment. Remedies to pests can include use of insecticides or removal of infected furniture.

House Prices

There is a property in M28 in Walkden priced at £84, 423. What things does a qualified RICS surveyor consider when valuing house prices in Walkden ?

A myriad of factors exist which could affect the price of property such as the existence of any restrictions over use of the property or the over all desirability of the street. It is useful to put side by side house values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The means house prices recorded at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £100, 123, which is £15, 700 more than the amount being asked. The combined house/flat average was £97, 890. 2A, Ladybridge Avenue, Worsley, Manchester, Salford, Greater Manchester, M28 3BP a detached property sold for £297, 000 .

The only way for home buyers to get an accurate home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as an inclusive part.

Gas flame

Will a chartered surveyor give details on the condition of the gas mains supply?

Your RICS chartered surveyor will visually check the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the meter location/position as part of the survey, as well as gas associated appliances e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. The Walkden qualified surveyor won't remove the gas fittings and won't run any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Gas is potentially dangerous, should there be any worries about gas fittings or if you smell gas, call a gas safe engineer.

The 1998 Gas Safety Regulations require landlords must to carry out appliance and installation inspections every 12 months. Non compliance penalties are criminal .
