HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Cleckheaton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Cleckheaton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Cleckheaton property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Cleckheaton property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Our agent said that the had been a problem with loose slates, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What should we investigate during the survey?

Cleckheaton properties in good condition can be hiding serious difficulties with the roof. From collar beams to eaves, the roof structure as a whole must be reviewed, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The maintenance of a roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. If a estimate for roofing work is required, a builder can provide one. Contact Red Kite Construction Ltd of 224 Spen La, Gomersal, Cleckheaton, BD19 4PJ on 01274 871888 to request an estimate.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a Cleckheaton property built in the late 50s, but it has clay foundations. Will a House Survey look into this?

Soil composition can have a great impact on a home. Specific problems include swelling of the soil, capable of irreparably damaging a home if untreated. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. Signs like warped window frames in the drawing room or cracks along the drawing room wall can be early indications of very serious structural issues. Steps like keeping standing water on the property in check can help maintain clay-rich soil, but a purchaser should discuss specifics with the surveyor if extensive upkeep is warranted.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We want to put in an offer on a place in Cleckheaton. Is there any English Garden Wall bond upkeep guidance we should be aware of??

Brick-constructed homes in Cleckheaton demonstrate several benefits over structures built with irregular stone, but they can also indicate both minor and serious issues, from erosion to thermal movement. Any such issues ought to be reported on, with repair advice also supplied. One frequently reported defect is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. A local builder should be able to assist. Call Drivers Construction Services Ltd, 31 Waterside, Appleton, Warrington, WA4 3BS on 07511 503010 for a quote for repair work.

For home purchasers in Cleckheaton seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
