HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Bradford and of the 3, which one is cheaper?

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

If the Bradford property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Bradford property's general condition along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can rain have on our new property? Could damaged rainwater goods lower the property value?

Rainfall is a fact of life in the UK, however, the impact wet conditions can have on a residence is usually overlooked by purchasers. If you have only visited the new home in warm weather, obvious defects may be harder to find. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include spalling masonry, and may lead to damage to foundations. Luckily, problems with drains are generally easy to resolve. If disregarded, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Bradford, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What does a surveyor look for?

This is frequently addressed by surveyors in Bradford. Houses across Bradford can be blighted by difficulties with the roof, for example, wet rot. From fascias to wind braces, many parts of the roof and loft will be considered. Problems can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

Upkeep can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. Contact Sheridan R & D of 6 Bentley Mount, Leeds, LS6 4AU on 0113-278 3472 for an estimate.

Stone block wall damage

Can stone-built properties be problematic. What matters should we be aware of, and what does the survey cover?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Lees Endcliffe Sandstone to Grey Dunhouse Sandstone. Issues including weathered stone affect many stone-walled property in Bradford. The two main forms of mortared stone wall construction found in Bradford are regular and irregular. Dry stone construction is used in garden walls and field boundaries, but is rarely employed for inhabited structures. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, exposure to the elements (especially in areas of higher pollution) will cause many limestones to rapidly degrade. Maintenance tips include.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Bolton Woods Quarry, Bolton Hall Road, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD2 1BQ, which quarries Sandstone, for details. Call 01274 595534 for more information.

To find a specific quarried stone, consider a stonemason or specialist in Bradford, such as Russell C Stone Merchants (York) Ltd, Ripley Rd, Bradford, BD4 7EX (Phone: 01274 727200).
