HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Hyde and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Hyde property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, you should you go for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Hyde property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding a garage) and how is it worked out

A Homebuyer Report will contain a property valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the report. To estimate the value of the property the valuer will pair local property market knowledge and other considerations relating to the property e.g. number of bedrooms Surveyors also reflect on certain fixtures and fittings and make certain key assumptions e.g. no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any impossible to rectify legal problems for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g share of freehold). Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Additional local Hyde area conjectures, such as use of parking or service connections, are made in addition to Hyde environmental problems like pig farms, which will also be factored in.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a house in Hyde (SK14) for an asking price of £107, 000. What factors will Hyde local surveyor consider in the process of a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values ranging from state (of neglect) of exterior to its proximity to other factors sought after amenities. It often helps to weigh up prices against values achieved in Hyde at the same time for similar properties.

The means house prices registered at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £122, 700 - £15, 700 more than £107, 000. The house/flat average was £120, 220. 39, Higham Lane, Hyde, Tameside, Greater Manchester, SK14 5LX a detached home sold for £75, 000 .

The best way for you to get an accurate property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. A chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

A professional qualified RICS surveyor will always actually visit the property as well as allowing for the long list of location variables that can impact on property values.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw there are no cracks in the brickwork outside, but sitting room floor dips noticeably, is this subsidence? Is this a major risk, and what can be done to fix subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a house, but some degree of movement will always occur. Newer homes, for example, will need to settle beneath the building's own weight. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new house after six months in order to repair settlement damage.

Collapsed drains, including mains drains, can cause subsidence by washing away or loosening subsoil. This is an example of groundwater subsidence. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either as a result of poor construction, materials or existing damage.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. It is vital to arrest any further movement, or risk of movement. You may need to monitor (and measure) the cracks for as much as a year before the picture becomes entirely clear.
