HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Hulme and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Hulme property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Hulme property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Hulme surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report in Hulme will include a professional valuation as well as a reinstatement cost estimate. To ascertain the valuation your surveyor will call upon area knowledge and other things about the property for instance: state of repair Surveyors also examine certain fixtures and fittings and draw upon other assumptions, for example the property is connected to mains services such as gas. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Hulme area conjectures, for example services, are made in addition to local environmental problems like railways, which will also be factored in.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will my RICS Surveyor look for on a smooth stucco Victorian house in Hulme that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a kind of solid render. Typically stucco is applied to underlying red brick that sets to a smooth stone like appearance. Stucco is very grand in appearance and is found on Victorian and Georgian buildings. It is almost exactly the same as plaster. Stucco is often problematic and Hulme Home Buyers Suveys frequently report issues e.g. when it is exposed to on-going weathering which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty is discovering damp underneath. Re-applying problems can be dear as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic brings up bad memories for us, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does a property surveyor look into during the survey?

Hulme residences with no other major issues could feature difficulties with the roof, for example, missing tiles. Any part of the roof or loft, such as tie beams, ought to be checked. The building surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Hulme, but it is a health and safety necessity. A local contractor with a recommendation from a friend or family member can provide a quote.
