The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Poynton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Poynton include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for reconstructing a garage) and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Poynton property will include an impartial valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To ascertain the correct valuation your RICS valuer will pair in depth understanding of the Poynton market as well as other factors about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also examine style of architecture and will draw upon other assumptions, for example no damaging building techniques have been used.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Please call for information. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no impossible to rectify legal issues such as consents for works having been granted. These will be investigated by your solicitor.

Additional local area assumptions, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or services, are made in addition to any local environmental concerns like pig farms, also being considered.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we should check on if buying a house in Poynton near a conservation area?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council. Surveyors in Poynton must have local knowledge of relevant local considerations and the effect may have on the home and its value. Property values is, more often than not, higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of them resisting change. However a large number have been neglected and are in a poor state for example - out of keeping extensions

Property surveyors will tell you if the property is or might be within a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Poynton Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted as part of the legal process. Unauthorised developments to the property may also be noted in the survey, however these should be investigated by your legal representative.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What input does a Poynton property surveyor give for property constructed with handmade bricks?

Brick-built Poynton conversions demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also be affected by a number of issues, including frost damage and thermal movement. For example, diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away and may require immediate attention.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. Bullet Brickwork (UK) Ltd at 1 Rhodes Ave, Bishop's Stortford, CM23 3JL on 01279 461497.

Brick-constructed property are used in properties built throughout the ages, leading to a number of styles. For example, Dutch bond, which is similar to English bond.

If the Poynton surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.
