HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Northwich and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Northwich property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Northwich property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I would be advised to on guard for if buying a period property in Northwich near a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local council.

A Building Surveyors must possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and the bearing they have on the property. Property Prices are generally significantly higher as a result of them being unspoilt. However a growing number are falling into a state e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

RICS surveyors will report whether the property is/might be in a conservation area and Section I of your Northwich Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out by your legal representation. Unsympathetic modifications to the property may also be noted, however these should be investigated by your lawyer. Susan Howarth & Co

Asbestos roof tiles

The mortgage valuation surveyor informed me there is a concern of asbestos boilers present in property. What is asbestos and can it be removed?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous mineral. Some types may be in building materials for example roof tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent tensile strength properties, it may be found in roof gutters.

All forms including Chrysotile are carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to break it. Professional advice should be sought urgently. You should never attempt to handle it yourself. Northwich Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Northwich home survey. They will note the risk of asbestos risks and should advise accordingly.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Do I need to get a full structural survey prior to investing in a dilapidated Edwardian basement maisonette in Northwich?

Full Structural Surveys was recently renamed as Building Surveys. The HomeBuyer Report will suffice if buying a post fifties Northwich maisonette made out of standard construction materials and methods. The Building Survey is certainly the appropriate one to go for the maisonette mentioned. Two to three days after the surveyor has carried out an exhaustive inspection of all accessible areas, the surveyor's formal report is sent to the buyer summarising thorough and far-reaching advice on the construction and uses of the building. There will be certain limitations with a Building Survey as the surveyor wont be able to force or open up the fabric of the Northwich house, an example being the removing loft contents.
