HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Elland and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Elland property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Elland property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

External walls

For the Elland HomeBuyer Report what does 'E4 - Main walls' refer to?

An example of this is a cracked arch. Note that concealed elements will not be considered, an in-depth building survey may be required if serious foundational issues are suspected. Damp proofing, including the DPC, is also included here.

RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give property buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy. As buyers in Elland are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. The report employs 'traffic light' ratings of red, amber and green to what extent each defect requires attention.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos pipe lagging insulation at the home. Should we be worried?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials such as vinyl flooring. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in asbestos blocks.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken never to remove the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Never endeavour to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Elland HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.

Conservation area

Are there any problems we need to check out when buying a converted flat in Elland inside a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in the UK which are overseen by local authorities. Your surveyor are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of local considerations and any effect they have with the property and its value. Values will likely be higher which is down to them being unspoilt. However many areas are falling into a poor state e.g. the excessive amount of traffic management signs

Surveyors will report if the house is possibly within a conservation area and Section I of a Homebuyer Report will suggest further investigations are conducted during the conveyancing process. Unsympathetic changes that do not have Local Authority approval will also be noted in the survey but these are really more a investigated by your legal adviser.
