Home Buyers Survey in Levenshulme

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Levenshulme and which is the cheapest?

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

If the Levenshulme property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out substantial modifications, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Levenshulme property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Building Surveys on apartments

When purchasing a doer-upper Victorian apartment property - is it necessary to upgrade to a full structural survey?

Structural surveys have a new title and are now called Building Surveys. You would be best advised to have the RICS Building Survey for the apartment you are planning to buy. A HomeBuyer Report goes into enough detail if investigating a 60 year old or less Levenshulme home built out of standard building materials. You should be aware of several limitations exist with a property survey - a surveyor cannot open up the fabric of the building or comment on non-permanent out buildings.

Damage resulting from flooding

We're purchasing in Levenshulme. Is there a flood risk, and will the surveyor look for indications of flooding?

2012 was the 2nd wettest year on record, and owning a house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger. Flood water can enter a Levenshulme home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. The Environment Agency also publish details of previous flood warnings.

Shocking Electrics

When I was shown a property I want to purchase I saw that there might be an overload of the fuses/fusebox; will the surveyor go into detail on the wiring and electrical system?

When conducting a Home Survey in Levenshulme the home surveyor will make a note on the electrical system if it is clear that they are in a dangerous state. The RICS surveyor should also focus on issues like the location of the meter or consumer unit. Verifying the location of the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.
