Blackpool is a seaside resort in the North West of England. According to research by the Post Office Money Blackpool is one of the top 10 areas in the UK for first-time buyers to get onto the housing market.
Whether you’re a current landlord, private individual hoping to buy your first home, a company or a buy-to-let investor, we can offer you a service tailored for your needs. If you have an interest in buying or investing in residential property for the first time, or are an existing resident looking to relocate, Avery & Co.’s Chartered Surveyors in Blackpool we’re here to help and guide you through the process.
Avery & Co.’s friendly team of Chartered Surveyors in Blackpool are here to offer you professional expert advice about the valuation or condition of any residential property you may be considering. Avery & Co. are regulated by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and specialise in the survey and valuation of residential property in Blackpool, and the surrounding areas. We have a team of experienced Chartered Surveyors located in Blackpool who are always pleased to offer independent specialist advice. Avery & Co. provide residential surveys and valuations for all types of residential property, whether that be a contemporary city centre studio, semi-detached house or a large detached property in need of renovation or modernisation.
Valuation reports are usually undertaken as part of the mortgage application process, but we provide this type of report for many different reasons. A valuation report provides an indication of Market Value, usually as at the date of the inspection. A valuation report does not provide any detail regarding the condition of the property, but does offer our professional opinion and any matters which may materially or significantly affect value. All of our Chartered Surveyors in Blackpool are Registered Valuers under the RICS Valuer Registration Scheme, also known as VRS. We undertake valuations for many different reasons, including under the Government Help to Buy Scheme. Our valuations are compliant with the requirements of Target Homes and Communities Agency (HCA). We can also help with valuations for many other reasons, which may include part-exchange, equity release, relocation, insolvency, taxation, matrimonial and probate purposes.
Our Chartered Surveyors based in Blackpool are able to offer a range of professional residential survey and valuation services. For example, our surveyors can offer property valuations and survey reports such as the RICS Homebuyer report or RICS Building Survey. Purchasing a property is often the largest investment many of us will make. Whether you just want a short report summarising the valuation of a property, or require more in-depth advice about a property, value or its condition, then Avery & Co.’s professionals can help.
RICS HomeBuyer Report
Blackpool has a wide variety of residential property types, ranging from contemporary seaside properties to long established historic buildings. The RICS HomeBuyer survey consists of a clear concise report which is designed for properties built after c.1900 of traditional design and construction and which do not require large amounts of renovation or rebuilding. The HomeBuyer Report is based on a visual inspection. It will identify any major defects to a property and provide guidance about the condition of each component. This report uses a traffic light system to highlight the urgency of any repair or other concerns. There is also a section for your legal advisor at the end of the report which advises on any matters which may need investigation or clarification by your conveyancer. Not all purchasers require a valuation as a part of this service and so Avery & Co. are pleased to be able to offer a Homebuyer Report excluding a valuation at reduced cost if required.

Blackpool has a wide range of residential buildings. These can sometimes be in a conservation area, be listed or in an area of special status. These properties can often be more complicated in respect of their construction, condition or future maintenance. Properties such as these, or properties which have been extensively altered or in need of major repair or renovation may not be suitable for a HomeBuyer Report. In such cases, a Building Survey would be the best option for a prospective purchaser. A Building Survey (sometimes inaccurately referred to as a ‘full structural’ survey) should not be confused with a report from a structural engineer. Like the Homebuyer Report, a Building Survey is based on a visual inspection, but the surveyor will spend a significantly longer period of time at the property and will also provide more in-depth advice on defects and how to treat them, including future maintenance advice and any other issues. Please note that a Building Survey does not usually include a valuation.
