HomeBuyer Report

Should we get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a home in Wirral and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Wirral property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Wirral property's general condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour said that leaks in the roof had been a concern. What should we investigate during the survey?

This is frequently addressed by house surveyors. Many residential properties can be hiding serious roof maintenance problems. From collar ties to purlins, all aspects of the roof will be considered. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like amateur repairs.

Fixing a leaking roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing contractor with solid references can provide a quote.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will a Wirral Surveyor look for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) Victorian home in Wirral.

Stucco is really just a form of render. Normally it is layered over brick that dries to a smooth flat finish. Stucco is highly beautiful and is common on some Regency houses. It is similar to plaster to apply. It may have lime in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Wirral Building Surveys sometimes focus on issues for example trapped water resulting in the surface falling away.

Another example of problems associated with stucco may include when the render is taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Remedying problems with stucco may be expensive as skilled tradesmen are getting harder to find.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a house in Wirral (CH46) for £148, 245. What will a surveyor take into account during a survey ?

Any number of issues that might affect the price of property ranging from national factors such as interest rates to the number of bedrooms in the property. It may help to look at the prices of house recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £146, 645, which is £1, 600 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The house/flat average was £141, 978. 6, Carr Gate, Wirral, Wirral, Merseyside, CH46 6EQ a detached property sold for £63, 000 .

The most accurate way for you to get an independent house valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.

The qualified RICS surveyor will always visit the site as well as factoring in the myriad of influences affecting values.
