HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Ashton In Makerfield and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Ashton In Makerfield property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Ashton In Makerfield property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a stucco rendered Victorian home in Ashton In Makerfield that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is in fact just a specific type of solid render. Usually stucco is layered over underlying brick that dries to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. The effect is very aesthetic and is often found on Victorian buildings. It is very similar to plaster. It can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it in addition to plant fibres to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Ashton In Makerfield Homebuyer Reports commonly discover defects like trapped moisture leading to the surface breaking.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could include when the stucco has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp

Proof Course. Re-covering problems with stucco can be difficult and costly as craftsmen are becoming harder to find.

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Ashton In Makerfield what are common an red light rating defects for 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

In Ashton In Makerfield, an example may be an old, worn out asphalt roof. Section E2 defects are inspected by the surveyor, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access.

A condition rating of three is used to emphasise the most crucial repairs. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage.

Building Surveys on flats 1

I am acquiring a converted Edwardian flat property in Ashton In Makerfield, should I opt for a full structural survey?

The Full Structural Survey is now known as a Building Survey. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if buying a post 1950s unmodified Ashton In Makerfield flat of conventional building materials. The Building Survey is definitely the advisable survey to opt for the flat described.

Typically a couple of days after a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the flat, a formal written report will be emailed and posted to the prospective purchaser going through in depth and crucial advice on the state of repair of the home. There will be certain limitations with the survey as a qualified RICS surveyor is not able to force or open up the fabric of the Ashton In Makerfield property e.g. removing roof space contents. Over and above house surveys, flats typically complicate the survey and the surveyor is only able to give an account of the actual flat, although he may go into detail about shared parts like for example shared staircases. For more details and a breakdown of what each survey type includes see here.
