About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Openshaw

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Openshaw and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Openshaw property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer comprehensive details of the Openshaw property's state of repair along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does the Openshaw surveyor give details on the state of repair of the gas flues?

A chartered surveyor will visually inspect any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as gas (and oil heaters) as part of the Openshaw survey, as well as gas connected fittings e.g. the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. Any gas fittings will not however be taken off. The gas system will not be tested. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous, if you have any concerns about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be concerned about when purchasing a house next to a landfill site

Landfill Sites take many forms e.g. domestic waste material. Of course nobody ideally wants to live near one (80% of people live under 2km away from one). Worries include bacterial decomposition resulting in methane .

Openshaw RICS surveyors will note structural issues linked to the site. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the British Geological databases in addition to Manchester Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .
