HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same survey.

If the Copmanthorpe property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any substantial modifications on the property, RICS recommend you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Copmanthorpe property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Sussex bond maintenance tips - can a surveyor in Copmanthorpe assist? Will it make a difference if render is applied?

Brick-walled residential property in Copmanthorpe can experience both minor and serious issues, ranging from spalling to erosion. An issue often addressed by surveyors in the region is rusted ties (this decay can be accelerated by black ash mortar often found in older properties). This expansion of the ties as they rust causes horizontal cracks leading to structural issues. A local builder should be able to assist. Call DGL Brickwork, 10 Marina Rd, Droylsden, Manchester, M43 7DB on 0161-370 0146 for a quote for repair work.

Brick-constructed property have been used for centuries, leading to a range of courses arrangements and colours. For instance, Flemish bond, featuring alternating long and short faces of bricks. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can

lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Substandard guttering

On a Copmanthorpe HomeBuyer Report what are common defects an amber light rating impacting 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere suspected issues relating to a combined heating and water system. Undersized downspouts is an example.

Condition rating 2 suggests that the aspect of the Copmanthorpe house in question will need some work, but this may not be urgent. Some areas may be marked as 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

House Prices

I am going to buy a property in YO26. The asking price is £132, 900. What different issues will your surveyor allow for when conducting a Home Survey ?

The average flat price paid between July and October in 2012 was £131, 000, which is £1, 900 less than the asking price. The average for houses and flats was £215, 240. 156, Acaster Lane, Bishopthorpe, York, York, York, YO23 2TD a leasehold flat recently sold for £131, 000 .
