Which Home Survey is the right choice?

  • House suitable for a HomeBuyer Report

    Homebuyer Report in Seaforth

    A Homebuyer Report is the right choice if buying a property constructed from conventional materials such as tile and brick, in reasonable repair and less than 100 years old.

  • Property suitable for a Building Survey

    Building Survey in Seaforth

    The RICS Building Survey (often referred to as a Full Structural Survey in Seaforth) is also carried out by a MRICS or FRICS qualified surveyor and is more exhaustive. Opt for this for non standard , for example architecturally unusual or older buildings.

  • Surveyor carrying out a Property Valuation

    Property Valuation Report in Seaforth

    This is an independent chartered surveyor valuation . This report is typically chosen by cash purchasers or anyone needing a formal valuation e.g. a dispute.

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Seaforth and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Seaforth property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Seaforth property's general condition as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any factors I would need to check on when purchasing an extended house in Seaforth in the vicinity of conservation area ?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities.

Home Buyers Surveys in Seaforth need to have relevant knowledge of relevant local area issues and any relation may have on the property and its value. The value of homes will probably be higher than non conservation area equivalents as a result of the areas retaining their original character. However many have been neglected and are in a state e.g. the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors will tell you if the property is/might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Seaforth Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are carried out by your solicitor. Unauthorised adjustments to the building may also be advised in your survey and these will be investigated in more detail by your lawyer. Breens are a local firm situated at 34 Crosby Road North, Sefton, Merseyside, L22 4QG might be prepared to give you some pointers. Tel: 0151 928 6544

Stone block wall damage

Can property in Seaforth built with stone cause issues for purchasers? Which related issues should we consider?

Stone walls are often ignored by home buyers due to their apparent strength and solidity. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include staining.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. You can request advice on the specific steps to be taken when a problem is identified.

Common guidance may include cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay. If you are planning to renovate, consider that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Seaforth Docks, Liverpool, L21 1JD, quarrying Crushed Rock, for details. Call 01519 222012 for more information.

To request additional information, contact a local stonemason or specialist, such as Fireplace Interior Studio of 149-151 Linacre Rd, Liverpool, L21 8JP.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact may rainfall have on a home?

As a frequent surveyor of property in the area, I find it strange that rainfall and the effect it can have on buildings in Seaforth are usually overlooked. For example, spalling masonry may indicate that the downspouts are blocked. This could then result in damp and mould.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix. If not maintained, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
