Need a Home Buyers Survey? Which one should you opt for?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    A Homebuyer Report is the best choice if you are purchasing a home constructed from standard building materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable order and constructed after 1900.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Longridge

    The Building Survey (previously called a Full Structural Survey in Longridge) is also conducted by a RICS accredited surveyor and is more exhaustive. Opt for this when buying a non standard property such as stone or older homes.

    This is an impartial valuation of the property. This is usually chosen by cash buyers or someone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

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

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

If the Longridge property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, you should you book a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it does offer a thorough analysis of the Longridge property's general condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Which Longridge Surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage)

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a cost of reinstatement as a standard part of the survey. To be able to determine the property's value your surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Longridge market and other factors relating to the property e.g. desirability of the location. Surveyors also examine style of architecture and draw upon other assumptions like there being no significant defects. Surveyors disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets. RICS valuations assume that there are no significant legal issues for example the possibility of legal enquiries revealing legal issue that might affect value. Advice should be sought from your conveyancing solicitor.

Additional local area conjectures like the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

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

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Longridge. Is there any Monk bond advice we should be aware of??

Brick-walled Longridge structures can suffer from various issues and defects, including crypto-florescence and signs of movement. An issue of particular concern is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. R B Brickwork may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 57 Long La, Croydon, CR0 7AR or 07769 184924.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include alternating courses of brick and stone, e.g. flint. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.

What should I be aware of if buying a house next to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: industrial waste material disposal. Understandably, no one would want to live near one (most people do live near one). Worries might include chemicals like dioxins. Potential health concerns like gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Longridge will consider structural defects linked to the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the Environmental Agency database as well as Ribble Valley Local Authority and give you the results of the search .
