Which Home Buyers Survey should you select?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Warrington

    The Homebuyer Report is the right choice when you are buying a property made of conventional building materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable order and built in the last 100 years.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Warrington

    A RICS Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Warrington) will also be conducted by a RICS chartered surveyor but is more detailed. Select this for non standard e.g. stone wall or older homes.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Warrington

    This is an impartial valuation . This report is often chosen by cash purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Warrington and of the 3, which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Warrington property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does provide you with a thorough analysis of the Warrington property's condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look out for on a smooth stucco Victorian home in Warrington which we wish to buy.

Stucco is a sort of flat finish render. Typically stucco render is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) hardens to form a smooth and even finish. The coating is very beautiful and is often found on Victorian properties. it can be prone to defect and Warrington Homebuyer Reports sometimes detail any number of problems e.g. trapped water leading to problems with damp which need attention.

Another example of problems could involve attack from sulphates sucked out of bricks. Resolving problems with stucco can be expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can damp weather have on a building in Warrington? If there are issues, will they be costly to fix?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the effect which rain has on buildings in Warrington is not given the attention it deserves by property buyers. One indication that downspouts are worth a closer look is damp stains around drainage. This can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

Whether buying in Warrington or elsewhere, difficult downspouts does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve for a reasonable cost, unless they are not maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Warrington Surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it calculated?

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as standard. To estimate an accurate value estimate the valuer will take into account experience of property in Warrington and other considerations about the property for instance: number of bedrooms Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will make certain other assumptions e.g. the property isn't on a land fill site.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Warrington conjectures, for example problematic roads and access, are made as well as any significant Warrington environmental problems like local Warrington industrial considerations, also being considered.
