About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Ardwick

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Ardwick and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Ardwick property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap, however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Ardwick property's condition as well as including information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Ardwick building with a loft conversion. I am particularly concerned about the state of the roof. What will our RICS surveyor check when the building is surveyed?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property can still be subject to issues with the roof. Every element should be checked, e.g. dormer windows. Issues can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like repairing a bowing truss, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A Ardwick roofing specialist can provide an estimate.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of if buying a property next to a refuse landfill site

Sites used for landfill take many forms for example: non-hazardous rubbish disposal. Of course nobody really wants to live near one (80% of people live near one). Risks include tars and other hazardous materials .

Surveys in Ardwick will find structural defects linked to the landfill. Your conveyancer will conduct conveyancing and environmental searches of the Landmark databases and Manchester Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Conservation area

Are there any problems we would need to be conscious of when purchasing an extended house in Ardwick in a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by local councils. Surveyors in Ardwick are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local area issues and any relation they have with the building. House prices tends to be more than prices outside the area due to them being unspoilt. However many areas are falling into a state of neglect for example - the removal front garden walls

RICS surveyors are expected advise you if the property is or might be so designated and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of the Ardwick Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are carried out by your legal representation. Unsympathetic developments to the property will also be noted but these are really more a concern for the solicitor.
