HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Chorley and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Chorley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations on the property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it will offer comprehensive details of the Chorley property's condition as well as an opinion on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on houses

I don't get the argument for choosing a full structural survey when considering a converted end of terrace property near Chorley instead of a HomeBuyer Report?

Although conventionally and incorrectly described as Full Structural Surveys by many home buyers - these technical property surveys are now named RICS Building Survey A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a mid 20th century of later unmodified property of typical construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is the suitable survey to opt for the house mentioned. Shortly after a thorough visual inspection of the accessible parts, a formal report is dispatched to the prospective purchaser running through any notable details in relation to the state of repair of the house. There are one or two provisos exist with a Building Survey - your local Chorley surveyor cannot, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the property nor can they assess the serviceability of energy sources.

Conservatory

On a Chorley HomeBuyer Report can you give some examples of Condition rating 3 defects impacting 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

For a Chorley home, one issue is a stair rise which is too big or uneven. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) will also be mentioned in the report. The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, and avoid potentially unfamiliar technical language. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent any problems or notable points may negatively impact the property. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a house - Should we get a RICS surveyor?

Property will often be free of major pests. However, if you do have specific concerns, you should seek advice. Regrettably, pests can impact a home's worth and affect the health of residents. An affected property may not always be easy to identify, small tunnels in wooded beams may indicate the presence of house longhorn beetles. Treatment for an infestation may include chemical treatment and destruction of tainted materials. Speak to a pest control specialist, such as Pestforce - Preston, 18 Springfield Road, Coppull, Nr Chorley, PR7 5EH on 0177 283 0310, to discuss remedies.
