Which Property Survey should you choose?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Baguley

    The Homebuyer Report should be chosen when planning to buy a home constructed from conventional materials i.e. brick and tile, in reasonable repair and build after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Baguley

    The Building Survey (which used to be called a Full Structural Survey in Baguley) will also be conducted by a MRICS/FRICS chartered surveyor and is more thorough. Choose this for non standard property such as thatched buildings.

    Property Valuation Report in Baguley

    This is an independent valuation . It is usually chosen by cash purchasers or someone requiring a formal valuation e.g. for probate.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Baguley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Baguley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations on the Baguley property, RICS advise you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Baguley property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor advise on the state of the gas heaters?

The RICS chartered surveyor will visually examine any accessible parts of the system. The surveyor will look at the gas pipe route as part of the survey, as well as gas connected installations, for instance chimney linings. Gas fittings won't however be removed. The system will not be tested at all. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Baguley? Are repairs going to be expensive?

I find it odd that the impact damp weather can have on Baguley houses is usually overlooked by purchasers. If you have only seen the property you intend to purchase in dry weather, defects may not have been obvious. Signs that rainwater goods are blocked include a waterlogged garden. This can lead to staining of wallpaper and damp.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. If disregarded, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage)

A Homebuyer Report in Baguley will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation in addition to a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. In order to determine the valuation your chartered surveyor will use experience of property in Baguley and other considerations relating to the property for instance: number of bedrooms. Your Baguley surveyor will also consider construction type and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been employed.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local Baguley area assumptions, for example service connections, are made as well as any significant Baguley environmental problems like local industry, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
