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 .

I am worried about an infestation in the house in Liverpool we plan to buy. What can we do?
Liverpool houses are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. When purchasing a home, this matter should be borne in mind.
It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. As an example, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to bug or other pest issues can include use of poison. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
We are buying in Liverpool. What will we need to pay attention to when buying older property? Will the home's age be a problem?
Many purchasers would be interested in owning a home with character, such as a Medieval cottage. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can concern buyers, and Houses featuring traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should be aware that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed buildings, Traditional building materials may be required. If the building you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your chartered surveyor for further advice.
