About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Heaton Moor

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Heaton Moor and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Heaton Moor property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out major works, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap however it will give you a thorough analysis of the Heaton Moor property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Heaton Moor? And could it affect the property value?

As a frequent surveyor of homes in the region, I find it strange that the effect which rain has on properties is usually overlooked. One indication that drainage systems are worth a closer look is spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. If you have suspicions, consider asking the surveyor for more information.

Luckily, problems with drains are quite easy to resolve, if caught early. Where this is not maintained, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

Traditionally built property

I am purchasing a 16th Century converted stable in Heaton Moor. What consequences will the rafter roof have on upkeep?

For houses in Heaton Moor built before the 20th Century, age can occasionally give buyers second thoughts. Heaton Moor houses built with traditional methods can be difficult to maintain. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Heaton Moor listed buildings.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about bugs in the home we plan to buy - Do we need a property surveyor?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. This problem should be taken seriously. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, termites are still rare in the UK, but may be present in imported timber. They are capable of almost hollowing out beams before they are discovered and can therefore put the structural integrity of a home at serious risk. As some infestations can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. If investigation does uncover a problem, consider speaking to the seller to ask that they deal with the issue prior to exchange.
