HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Ackworth and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Ackworth property is a flat, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it will offer a thorough analysis of the Ackworth property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

I want to acquire a detached property in Ackworth (WF9). The vendor is asking £105, 995. What will the Ackworth local surveyor consider in the process of a Home Survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that might affect the price of property from whether alterations have planning permission to the number of bedrooms in the property. It may help to benchmark prices values achieved in the nearby area for similar properties.

This means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £133, 895, which is £27, 900 more than the asking price. The house/flat average was £126, 600. 31, Madison Close, Ackworth, Pontefract, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF7 7BP a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £285, 000 .

The best way for home buyers to get an independent property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report

which includes a formal valuation as standard. A qualified surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

The qualified RICS surveyor will actually visit the site as well as factoring in all other area issues that have a bearing on values.

Conservatory

In the HomeBuyer Report what might a Condition Rating 1 mean for 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' ?

Quite a common example is steps or landing areas which are settling or heaving. Porches, conservatories and similar elements of the property's construction are included here. Any signs of inappropriate use, such as using a conservatory as a bedroom or kitchen should also be reported on.

Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed. However, frequent maintenance could still be needed. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular house or flat, omitting sections as necessary.

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about vermin in the property in Ackworth we plan to buy - Do we need a property surveyor?

Pests like thrips may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Ackworth. Regrettably, pest problems can impact a home's worth and carry serious health risks. Signs may not be obvious. For example, carpet beetle larvae, or 'woolly bears' may be recognised by distinctive round bite marks along seams of clothing. Able to survive months without food, there may initially be no obvious evidence of their presence. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include traps. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
