Home Buyers Survey in Widnes

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Widnes and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Widnes property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give a more detailed analysis of the Widnes property's condition as well as including advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

English Heritage

We are intending to buy a property near Cranshaw Hall Moated Site , will this affect the property's value?

Cranshaw Hall Moated Site is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can add to the desirability of an area. Your surveyor will include all regional criteria when conducting homebuyer report in Widnes. Refer to the English Heritage site for more details on Cranshaw Hall Moated Site.

Conservation area

Will there be any concerns I need to consider when buying a property in Widnes near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by the local council. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local factors and any connection may have on the building. Property Prices tends to be higher due to conservation areas being unspoilt.

Surveyors can be expected to report whether the location is/might be in a conservation area and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Widnes Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted as part of the legal process. Out of keeping developments to the property may also be noted, however these should be concern for the lawyer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Widnes include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate

Homebuyer Reports include a surveyor valuation and a reinstatement cost as an integral part of the report. To work out the property's value the surveyor will relate to experience of property in Widnes as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: size. Surveyors also examine construction type and draw upon key assumptions like the property isn't on a land fill site.

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

Further Widnes assumptions, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to Widnes environmental concerns like local Widnes industrial considerations, which will also be factored in.

Shocking Electrics

When we visited the home we expect to purchase, the agent said that there is an old fuse board - does a Widnes Homebuyer Report give details on on the general state of the electrical system?

When preparing a Widnes Home Survey the home surveyor will report on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in a hazardous state of repair. A Home surveyor is trained to report back on potential areas for concern such as inspecting the category of the electrical fittings in bathrooms or checking the state of a representative sample of light fittings.

Verifying the existence of any documents from any recent PIR conducted by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The IEE recommend a periodic test be completed every 10 years (5 if letting). Always seek nearby Widnes advice on domestic electrical systems call E P C Electrical Services , 95 Stewards Ave, Widnes, WA8 7BP .
