Home Buyers Survey in Atherton

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Atherton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Atherton property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Atherton property's state of repair and it includes more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are concerned about insects. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Regrettably, pests can be costly to fix and affect the health of residents. It may not be obvious that a house is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. As some pests can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account. Contact a specialist, e.g. First Alert Environmental Services Limited, 53 Ennerdale Road, Astley, Manchester, M29 7AR, or call 0161 799 1778, to discuss remedial options.

Building Surveys on houses

We are acquiring a substantially modified Edwardian semi detached property - is it best to commission a full structural survey?

Full Structural Surveys are now called Building Surveys. We would suggest that you commission the Building Survey in relation to the house you are contemplating. A HomeBuyer Report is detailed enough if buying a non period unmodified house of typical construction materials and methods. There are some limitations that are integral with any residential survey as a RICS surveyor cannot open up the structure of the property for example, or comment on the regulatory compliance of heating systems.
