Home Buyers Survey in Rainford

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Rainford and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Rainford property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any significant alterations, you should you commission a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Rainford property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will a surveyor look at the safety of the gas flues?

A qualified surveyor will locate and visually check out the easily accessible parts of the gas system. The survey will include the mains gas installation where relevant, as well as gas related installations such as fireplaces. If there are any fittings they won't be taken off. The gas system won't be tested in any way. Most people are aware that gas can be deadly, should there be any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.

The regulations obligate landlords to commission appliance and installation inspections every 12 months and punishments for failure to comply are severe .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and what does it include?

A Homebuyer Report on a Rainford property will contain a (registered valuer) surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To ascertain the property's value your chartered surveyor will call upon knowledge of Rainford and other considerations relating to the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also examine style of architecture and will use other assumptions e.g. there are no hazardous materials. Surveyors will disregard certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local Rainford area assumptions, like service connections, are made in addition to environmental concerns like Rainford planning proposals (e.g flight path), which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee by request. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a farmstead in Rainford. What effect will the thatched roof have on repairs?

Many buyers in Rainford have looked at purchasing a home with character, such as a Medieval cottage. Older construction methods and materials, however, can concern buyers. Rainford houses employing traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be a chore to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional materials, which could increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.Mention this to the chartered surveyor for more detail.
