HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Melling and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Melling property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Melling property's general condition in addition to advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

There is a flat in L31 for £117, 600. What considerations will a Melling chartered surveyor evaluate when estimating house prices in Melling ?

There are many factors which could positively or negatively affect the price of property such as the homes proximity to contaminated land or whether the property is on an adopted road. You can try to compare with prices achieved in the nearby area for similar properties. The mean flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £96, 500, which is £21, 100 less than the price being asked. The combined house/flat average was £142, 854. 21, Hudson Road, Maghull, Liverpool, Sefton, Merseyside, L31 5PA a leasehold flat sold for £96, 500 .

The only way for you to get an impartial house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

The RICS surveyor should go to the building in addition to considering all other factors that can impact on values.

Traditionally built property

I am buying a farmstead. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

Some buyers in Melling would be interested in owning a house with personality, like a barn conversion. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Homes employing traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Construction materials, such as locally-quarried stone, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Melling listed buildings. If you have doubts, speak to your surveyor for further advice.

Damage resulting from flooding

We understand this property is located near a river. Is there a major flood risk? Would our property surveyor consider any flooding damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Independent). Both property purchasers and home owners in areas at a high risk of flooding are right to be worried.

Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the property in question is in danger. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, make recommendations for repair work or improved flood protection. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood, the data used to compile third-party flood assessments also takes into account flood defences and historic claims.
