About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Adlington

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Adlington and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Adlington property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any an extension, you should you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Adlington property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to consider gutters, and does our RICS surveyor in Adlington mention it? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the effect which rainfall has on Adlington houses is overlooked. One indication that drainage systems are worth a closer look is streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering.

Fortunately, problems with drains are generally easy to remedy. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair. In the worst case scenario, deterioration of a building's foundations can become fatal to its structural integrity, risking collapse.

Gas flame

Does the chartered surveyor look into the condition or the safety of the gas flues?

Yes. The RICS chartered surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the mains is connected at the building, in addition to gas associated installations like the condition of gas piping in loft spaces. The fittings will not be removed. The gas system will not be tested at all. Of course, gas is potentially hazardous, should you have any worries about gas or if you smell the distinctive smell of gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

Building Surveys on houses

What is the justification in spending a bit more on the full structural survey when looking into a defective detached townhouse near Adlington rather than a HomeBuyer Report?

Albeit regularly described as Full Structural Surveys by many - they have been superseded by Building Surveys It is the best property survey when purchasing an unconventional property, for example an extended Adlington house. The survey gives full and often serious professional advice about the homes condition and any technical details, shortly after a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.
