Home Buyers Survey in Horwich

HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Horwich and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Horwich property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Horwich property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

I'm confused - which surveys include a valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees e.g legal fees) and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Horwich property will include a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as a standard part of the survey. To properly appraise an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will factor in knowledge of Horwich as well as other factors about the property for instance: size Your Horwich surveyor will also consider materials used and will use other assumptions such as there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Further Horwich conjectures, for example the access roads not being in private control, are made in addition to local environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

Conservation area

Are there any things I would be advised to look into if planning to buy a property in Horwich in conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK, responsibility for which lies with local authorities. Horwich surveyors must possess knowledge of local area factors and any relation they have on the building and its value. Values is usually significantly higher because of conservation areas retaining original features.

Surveyors are expected report if the planned purchase looks like it may be is so classified and Section I of a Horwich Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are conducted during the legal process. Unapproved extensions that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised in your survey, however these should be investigated by the solicitor. Lansdale & Holdsworth are a local firm situated at 1 The Studios, Bolton, Greater Manchester, BL1 4JU and may be able to advise. Tel: 01204 491111
