HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Whalley Range and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Whalley Range property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does offer comprehensive details of the Whalley Range property's condition along with an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Whalley Range include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report will contain an independent valuation and a rebuilding cost as part of the survey. To work out an accurate estimate of the value of the building your RICS valuer will call upon awareness of the Whalley Range property market and other considerations about the property e.g. size Surveyors also reflect on materials used and make certain key assumptions e.g. there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any expensive legal problems for example no problematic restrictions. Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancer.

Further area assumptions, such as there being no disputes between occupiers or services, are made in addition to any local

environmental problems like the property being underneath a flight path, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see the unmodernised property we want to acquire we noticed that there is an old fuse board - will a Homebuyer Report in Whalley Range go into detail on any faults with the electrics?

During a Whalley Range Homebuyer Report the home surveyor should usually make a note on the condition of the electrics if it is apparent that they are in a hazardous state of repair. This will include a non invasive check (i.e. no removal of fittings) of the open parts of the wiring as well as concerns such as examining the condition of fitted electrical appliances such as storage radiators or reporting on the condition of a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. A check for the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by an electrician on the property should be part of the survey in Whalley Range.

The IEE suggest that a Periodic Inspection should be carried out every 10 years (5 if letting out).

Stone block wall damage

Do stone-walled homes cause issues for buyers? What should we look in to, and what will the survey reveal?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Defects affecting stone-built Whalley Range homes can vary, erosion of pointing joints being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. If you are planning to renovate, consider that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
