HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Brighouse and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Brighouse property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make substantial modifications on the Brighouse property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you comprehensive details of the Brighouse property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

If in doubt you can get a Brighouse Home Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Building Surveys on houses

I don't quite see the argument for getting a full structural survey when looking into a converted terraced bungalow in Brighouse over a HomeBuyer Report?

Now often described as a Full Structural Survey by many home buyers, it is no longer available and has been renamed by RICS and the right term is now the Building Survey. When contemplating the buying of an altered property e.g. an older Brighouse house, Building Survey is now the right choice of home survey to have carried out. Following a thorough inspection of the accessible parts of the house, a formal written report will be sent to the prospective buyer summarising in depth and salient professional advice about the construction materials used on the house.

There are certain limitations with any residential survey to consider as your surveyor wont be able to, unless safe to do so and with consent from the owner, force or open up the fabric of the Brighouse property such as removing roof space contents.

House Prices

I am going to purchase a flat in Brighouse (HD6) for £90, 300. What different issues will your surveyor evaluate when carrying out a valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that can add to or subtract from property values ranging from view to the modernity of the kitchen. It is useful to look at flat prices achieved in Brighouse at the same time for similar flats. The average flat price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £80, 500, which is £9, 800 less than the price being asked. The house/flat average was £149, 392. Croft Court, Apartment 7, Mount Lane, Brighouse, Calderdale, West Yorkshire, HD6 3QZ a leasehold maisonette sold for £80, 500 .

The only way to get a professional home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as a core component. A local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Brighouse, and think we saw signs of bugs in the bedrooms - Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Pests like house longhorn beetle may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Brighouse. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. Treatment for vermin may include professional cleaning and destruction of tainted materials. The Brighouse surveyor may include notes on any signs of vermin or other pests in their report. It is, however, advisable that specific worries you may have be raised ASAP.
