Should we get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Liverpool and which is the cheapest?
The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.
If the Liverpool property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.
If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liverpool property's general condition in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Which Liverpool Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees e.g legal fees)
A Homebuyer Report on a Liverpool property will contain a professional valuation and will also include a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To ascertain the property's value your independent surveyor
will take into account knowledge of Liverpool and other factors about the property for instance: accommodation The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain other assumptions such as there are no hazardous materials.
A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
Additional local Liverpool area conjectures, like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental issues like Liverpool planning proposals (e.g flight path), which will also be factored in.

What impact may rainfall have on a Liverpool building?
The impact of climate change is widely reported, yet the impact rainfall can have on a structure is not considered. One indication that rainwater goods are at risk is leaves or other vegetation causing a blockage. Poor drainage can lead to rising damp.
The good news is that drainage problems are generally easy to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive. However, if the drains are left untreated, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
