HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Dewsbury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

If the Dewsbury property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make an extension on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Dewsbury property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

We are wanting to investing in a house in WF12 for around £128, 964. What will the qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in Dewsbury ?

Any number of issues that can impact on house prices like whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or the likelihood of development occurring nearby. It can help to consider values achieved in Dewsbury at the same time for comparable properties.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £128, 864, which is £100 less than the amount the vendor is asking for. The average factoring in houses and flats was £120, 851. The Cherries, Bronte Close, Dewsbury, Kirklees, West Yorkshire, WF13 4SA a detached property sold for £59, 000 .

In order for you to get an accurate property valued is with a Homebuyer Report in Dewsbury which includes a formal valuation as part of the service.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We found cracks along one external wall when we last viewed the property. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence issues does the Surveyor report on?

Movement of the foundations of a house is called subsidence. However, there is a difference between settlement and subsidence. In general, homes are built with a variety of materials, each with a different shrinkage rate.

In areas of clay soil, a dry spell will lower the water table. This dries out and shrinks the clay, pulling on the homes foundations and which causes subsidence. In some cases, the presence of buried organic material, which begins to rot, can also destabilise the structure. This will cause the soil beneath and around the foundations to collapse.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home, with no underpinning required. Even with professional help, a definite diagnosis can take months.

Damaged Render

What defects will the Chartered Surveyor consider on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency semi detached home in Dewsbury.

Stucco is in fact a type of solid render. Usually stucco render is applied to underlying brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The effect is very grand in appearance and is common on some Georgian buildings. It may contain lime (to make it workable) in it in addition to plant fibres to stop cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Dewsbury Home Buyers Suveys can detail potentially expensive to remedy problems for example trapped moisture resulting in damp problems needing repair.

Another example of problems could involve attack from salts derived from wet underlying brickwork. Remedying problems with stucco may be costly as craftsmen are getting harder to find.
