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 .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick repair advice, can a property surveyor in Whalley Range help? Are brick walls hard to repair?

Brick-built converted property do benefit from many advantages, but they will also be affected by both minor and serious issues, such as crumbling mortar. For example, frost damage, which over time will cause bricks and mortar to disintegrate entirely and may require immediate attention. Contact Carrick Construction for a repairs estimate at 01788 551836 or 56 Fleet Cr, Rugby, CV21 4BG.

One example is Flemish bond or sailor bond are both used in Whalley Range converted property. Consider renegotiating the price of the Whalley Range property, based on the results of your survey. Works to remedy even some superficial brick wall defects can be both expensive and disruptive.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a gatehouse in Whalley Range. Will the structure's age be a concern?

For traditionally-built Whalley Range property, age can worry purchasers. Whalley Range structures built using traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Whalley Range listed buildings.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about an infestation in the house in Whalley Range we plan to buy. Will the HomeBuyer Report investigate this?

Homes are not usually impacted by serious cases of pest problems, but buying without any professional advice on the issue is not recommended. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. An affected home may not always be easy to identify, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Remedies to an infestation can include use of insecticides and removal or excision of affected timber. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
