Home Buyers Survey in Cleator Moor

HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Cleator Moor and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Cleator Moor property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Cleator Moor property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We need brick guidelines for upkeep, can the surveyor help?

Brick-built Cleator Moor converted property demonstrate several benefits. Unfortunately, they also be subject to several common problems. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. Contact Moore & Smith for a repairs estimate at 01530 231831 or 259 Main St, Thornton, Coalville, LE67 1AJ.

A number of styles of brick building are used in properties built throughout the ages. Maintenance work may be more time-consuming and costly than you assume.

Consider the advice of both the surveyor and a builder or other specialist if potential structural defects arise during the survey.

Conservation area

Are there any factors I would be advised to be wary of if intending to buy a home in Cleator Moor in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are around ten thousand of designated conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by local authorities. Surveyors in Cleator Moor need to have knowledge of relevant local area factors and any connection they have on the property and its value. The price of property tends to be higher which is down to conservation areas being in good order. However many have fallen into a poor state e.g. increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

Surveyors are expected note whether the building is or might be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Homebuyer Report will advise additional enquiries are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unapproved adjustments to the property will also be noted in the survey, however these should be concern for your conveyancer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate

The Homebuyer Report contains a valuation and a reinstatement cost estimate included in the cost of the survey. When calculating the correct valuation your independent surveyor will pair area knowledge and other considerations relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on style of architecture and will make certain other assumptions such as the ground is not land filled.

A Building Survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further area assumptions, like services, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like busy roads, also being considered.
