Home Buyers Survey in Parbold

HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Parbold and of the 3, which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey but is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the Parbold property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Parbold property's condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I would like to acquire a property in Parbold (WN8). The vendor is asking £264, 626. What considerations will a Parbold RICS chartered surveyor evaluate when conducting a RICS survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect house prices ranging from whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold to whether it is near the coast or has a coastal view. As an indicator, one can try to set against the prices of house recorded in Parbold for similar properties.

The means house prices completed between July and October in 2012 was £248, 526, which is £16, 100 less than the price you are intending to pay. Stone Hall Farm, Stone Hall Lodge, Crow Lane, Dalton, Wigan, West Lancashire, Lancashire, WN8 7RY a detached home sold for £68, 000 .

In order for you to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a formal valuation as standard. Your RICS chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme (established register of valuers).

Roof defects identified during a survey

The estate agent said that the had been a problem with loose slates - Which issues relating to the roofing will be reported on when the survey is performed?

This is a common concern for house purchasers who have had to put up with weeks of scaffolding around their home while work is underway. Houses across Parbold can be blighted by issues with the roof. From valley gutters to eaves, every part of the roof should be investigated. Factors like amateur repairs are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

The prospect of large bills for roofing jobs (such as a complete replacement) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a roofing specialist a quote for any suggested work.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact can heavy rainfall have on a house? Could it affect the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, this issue is ignored by house purchasers. One indication that drainage systems are a cause for concern is spattered mud around the bottom of downspouts. Whether buying in Parbold or elsewhere, difficult drainage systems do not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to repair fairly cheaply. If disregarded, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
