HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Blackley and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Blackley property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it does give a more detailed analysis of the Blackley property's condition as well as information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Building Surveys on flats 1

Is it necessary to upgrade to full structural survey prior to acquiring a shabby Victorian warehouse flat in Blackley?

The Full Structural Survey is now called the Building Survey. If you are buying an altered Blackley home, for example a structurally modified flat, this is now the most suitable survey. It specifies full and salient advice in relation to the buildings condition and any defects, following a thorough inspection of any accessible parts. There are certain restrictions with any residential survey as a qualified surveyor will not be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Blackley property for example moving heavy furniture. Additionally flat conversions mean access to the building can be prevented - so the surveyor is only authorised investigate the

flat itself, though the surveyor may exist communal sections of the property such as the roof. For more information and a comparison of the differences between surveys please read Survey comparison table.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor look into the state of repair of the gas installations?

Your RICS surveyor will visually survey any accessible parts of the system. The survey will include whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas related gas fittings in the home for example - ventilation of flue (if blocked). Should there be any external fittings or housings they won't be taken off. Of course, gas can be dangerous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1860s home with stone walls. Are there any issues that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

From Westwood Ground Limestone to Monks Park Limestone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Problems which impact stone-built houses can vary greatly, with issues like displacement being quote common. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work. If you are planning to renovate, consider that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.
