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 .

Shocking Electrics

When we were shown the period property we are intending to purchase we think we noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system, does a Cleckheaton survey write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When preparing a Home Buyers Survey in Cleckheaton a RICS surveyor will typically remark on the electrical system if it is obvious that they are in a hazardous state of repair.

This should include a non invasive examination of exposed sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as things, for example confirming the category of the electrical fittings in shower rooms or checking the condition of any visible wiring a sample of switch gear.

Confirming the existence of any documentation from any recent PIR handled by an electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Cleckheaton.

The IEE (Institute of Electrical Engineers) advocate that a check to confirm whether an electrical installation is in a satisfactory condition be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting).

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would be advised to consider when planning to buy a property in Cleckheaton near a conservation area ?

There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in the UK which are designated by the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Cleckheaton are required by RICS to have local knowledge of local issues and the relation may have with the home. The value of homes tends to be significantly higher due to them resisting change. However a large number are falling into disrepair e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors will note whether the property looks like it may be is so classified and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will recommend further enquiries are carried out by your legal adviser. Unapproved changes to the property may also be reported but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer. Williams & Co are based in Brooke House, Kirklees, West Yorkshire, BD19 3RS should be happy to tell you what to look out for. Tel: 01274 851608

Gas flame

Does the surveyor check out the state of repair of the gas flues?

The external fittings won't be taken off. Most people are aware that gas can be fatal, if you have any concerns about gas fittings or if you smell gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
