Which Property Survey should you select?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Crofton and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Crofton property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications on the Crofton property, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give comprehensive details of the Crofton property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a flat close to WF4 - Crofton priced at £74, 200. What things does a Crofton RICS chartered surveyor consider when calculating house prices in Crofton ?

There are many factors that can add to or subtract from property values like the quality of nearby schools or if it is near a potential development. It may help to benchmark selling prices achieved in Crofton at the same time for similar properties. The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £71, 500, which is £2, 700 less than the price you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and flats was £122, 544. 2, Ashwood Green, Ryhill, Wakefield, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF4 2BQ a leasehold flat recently sold for £71, 500 .

The best way to get an impartial house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. Your chartered surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour commented that there is a concern of loose asbestos in the home. What is asbestos, are there any risks, can it be handled easily and Should I be concerned?

Asbestos is a noxious fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. textured coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in water tanks. Technically all forms including white are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer or fibrosis following prolonged exposure. Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to remove asbestos and professional advice should be sought ASAP.

Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Crofton home survey. They will report on the risk of asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We saw evidence of a gap below the skirting board in the lounge, is this subsidence? What can be done to remedy subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a home which compromises its structural integrity. Most homes may suffer some degree of superficial cracks. New buildings in Crofton and properties with new structural alterations will be particularly susceptible. Less common than subsidence, heave occurs when the ground is forced up rather than down.

Subsidence-related cracks are commonly wider as the crack migrates upward. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in plasterwork.

Learning the cause of any subsidence should be the first priority. It has been estimated that around 70 per cent of cases of subsidence are caused by tree roots taking the moisture out of the soil. Specialist geological and drain surveys may also be required as the movement of soil can sometimes crack drains or water mains.
