HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bingley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Bingley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Bingley property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Bingley, and can a Bingley building survey investigate indications of flooding damage?

Burst dams, poor drainage and tidal activity can cause flooding; sensible owners and home purchasers in Bingley are right to consider precautions. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes, but a surveyor will also make recommendations to prepare for the worst. An awareness of characteristics of the Bingley area likely to affect the property also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the occupier about historical floods, although the result of these enquires should be treated as a guide only.

Asbestos roof tiles

The seller has mentioned that there could be powdery asbestos wallpaper in the house. What is asbestos, what are the risks and will the home survey inspect it?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials including rain water goods.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good resistance to chemical damage properties, it may be found in gutters. Technically all forms are ultimately carcinogenic and may lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to damage it and expert advice must be taken ASAP. You should never endeavour to handle it yourself. Approved experts can be found at www.arca.org.uk. Surveyors will not verify the presence of asbestos on a Bingley home survey. They will report on possible asbestos during the Bingley survey and should recommend professional testing.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the old property - What does the home surveyor be concerned about during the survey work?

Properties in Bingley in good condition can still be subject to damage to the roof, including. From the concrete tiles to the tie beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by holes or cracks in the waterproof layer.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like felting a flat roof, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal. Speak to Heaton Roofing of 30 Cote La, Allerton, Bradford, BD15 8LA on 01274 491429 for a quote.
