HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Woolton and which is cheaper?

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

If the Woolton property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the Woolton property's general condition as well as including more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a apartment in Woolton and saw evidence of cracks along the garage ceiling, could this be evidence of subsidence? What can be done to remedy subsidence if subsidence is found during the home survey?

Movement of the foundations of a building is called subsidence. In the case of new builds, the builder should return to a new building after some months so that they can make minor repairs caused by the settlement.

Superficial cracks not caused by subsidence could be painted over. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Finding the cause of any subsidence is key. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. In serious cases, underpinning may be required. Underpinning involves holes being dug 1 metre long and around 1.5 metres deep, along all affected sections of wall, and just beneath the present foundations. Reinforcement bars and concrete are then inserted into

these pits to support the structure, as the rest of the foundations are dug out and similarly filled in with concrete. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. A surveyor will be able to tell you if there is subsidence in your home or not, and what is causing it.

House Prices

We are shortly to be buying a property close to Woolton (L25) for an asking price of £81, 298. What considerations will a qualified surveyor take into account when valuing house prices in Woolton ?

There are a huge number of issues which could affect property values for example the existence of double glazing or whether the property is on an adopted road. As an indicator, one can try to benchmark prices flat prices registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties. The mean flat price paid between July and October in 2012 was £58, 898, which is £22, 400 less than the asking price. The house/flat average was £143, 238. Woolton Court, Flat 10, Woodvale Road, Woolton, Liverpool, Liverpool, Merseyside, L25 8RY a new build leasehold flat recently sold for £37, 500 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get an accurate and professional property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component.

Substandard guttering

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Woolton, can you give some examples of Condition rating 2 defects impacting rainwater pipes and gutters?

An 'amber' condition rating of 2 implies that some repair work is needed to arrest further decay. This may not be urgent, however.

They are visually inspected. Other related matters are found elsewhere in the HomeBuyer Report any defects in a combined system. Leaking or clogged gutters, for example, is included in Section E.
