HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Middleton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Middleton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you comprehensive details of the Middleton property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What advice would a Middleton surveyor give for residences built from brick walls? Is age a factor?

Middleton properties with brick walls can be affected by numerous defects. Such defects will be discussed in the report. One particularly serious issue is thermal or other movement. Often vertical cracks appear above the level of the DPC, running the full height of the wall, where this seasonal expansion and contraction occurs. JS may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 07730 603340 or 14 Grimshaw Pl, Preston, PR1 3BW.

Styles of brickwork can range from the relatively common, like common bond, which is made up of stretchers (long faced bricks) with headers (the short face of the brick) every 6 courses or rows, to the rare, such basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Middleton, and think we saw signs of vermin in the bathroom. Do we need a surveyor?

Any questions about pests affecting a Middleton property may not be asked by the lawyer. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, house longhorn beetles can be identified by evidence of small tunnels through beams and floorboards, burrowed by the larvae. Treatment for a serious infestation may include use of insecticides or destruction of tainted materials. As awareness of less common problems grows, more surveys should identify these and advise on remedies.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Middleton surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a boundary wall) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Middleton property will contain a valuation and a "reinstatement cost". To properly appraise the correct valuation your independent surveyor will refer to local Middleton market factors as well as other factors about the property e.g. general condition Surveyors also examine construction methods and will draw upon other assumptions such as there are no hazardous materials.

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. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any serious legal issues for example access to the property over estate roadways. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, such as use of communal facilities or the property being insurable, are made in addition to Middleton environmental issues like Middleton planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.
