HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Batley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Batley property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension, RICS advise you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Batley property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

I am going to put in an offer in on a property in Batley, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What aspects of the roofing will be looked into?

Batley property that are otherwise ideal can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roof maintenance problems. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to dormers. The surveyors in Batley could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

The maintenance of a roof need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A Batley roofing specialist can provide an estimate. Speak to Steve Pollard Roofing & Building Ltd of 13 St. Pauls Rd, Mirfield, WF14 8AX on 01924 489650 for more information.

Window frame

On the HomeBuyer Report what does 'E5' cover?

In Batley, examples include a loose fitting sash window. Where practicable, all windows are to be opened and closed, but not forced open, and vulnerable areas closely examined. The surveyor should make notes and advise the client whether it is possible to operate the window transoms/openings satisfactorily.

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Batley are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Irrelevant subsections of the HomeBuyer Report, like an assessment of a conservatory where the home in question does not have one, are disregarded.
