HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Reddish and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same.

If the Reddish property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any works or an extension on the Reddish property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey instead. This option is not as cheap, but it will give exhaustive analysis of the Reddish property's state of repair as well as information on defects and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will my RICS Surveyor consider on a spar dash rendered (stucco) regency home in Reddish which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is a smooth and flat solid render. Commonly stucco render is applied to brick that sets to an even finish. The coating is highly beautiful and is/was common on some Victorian and Regency properties. The composition is very similar to mortar (sand and cement). It may have lime in it as well as a wire under mesh. to stop cracks. it can be prone to defect and Reddish Building Surveys sometimes focus on issues such as trapped moisture resulting in the render failing requiring costly repairs.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could be when the render is taken down to ground level and bypasses the DPC or Damp Proof Course. Resolving Stucco problems may be costly as the skills are becoming harder to find.

Asbestos roof tiles

There may be a danger of asbestos boilers concealed in the home. What is asbestos?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous mineral. Some types are found in the building materials e.g. shed roofs. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in soil vent pipes for example. It is mainly found in South Africa.

All forms including white ( Chrysotile) are ultimately carcinogenic and might lead to lung cancer or pleural disease following prolonged exposure. Contrary to common perception, inhaling a one fibre is not deadly.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to break asbestos and professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Getting rid of asbestos will probably be costly must always be completed by professionals.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos on a Reddish survey. Your surveyor will report on possible asbestos during the Reddish survey and will recommend relevant tests.

House Prices

I intend to acquire a detached property in SK5. The asking price is £86, 018. What things does a Reddish surveyor consider when carrying out a professional valuation ?

Any number of issues which could positively or negatively affect the price of property from whether correct consents are in place to whether there is a flying freehold. It often helps to weigh up prices against house values achieved in the area for comparable properties.

The average house price paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £107, 118, which is £21, 100 more than the amount you are intending to pay (£105, 105 was the blended house/flat average). 28, Beresford Crescent, Stockport, Stockport, Greater Manchester, SK5 6NU a detached home sold for £162, 500 .

An sensible way to get an impartial home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report in Reddish which includes a formal valuation by default. A RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

The RICS surveyor will visit the home as well as factoring in the multiple area items that can impact on house prices.
