HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Halifax and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same.

If the Halifax property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Halifax property's state of repair as well as including an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about if buying a house close to Ambler Thorn Works on Off Brow Lane and landfill sites generally

Landfill Sites take many forms including domestic rubbish disposal. There are thousands of sites affect 100, 000's people in the UK including Halifax. Concerns include heavy metals. Potential health problems such as birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Halifax will find any structural problems linked to the landfill. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission environmental searches of the Landmark database and Calderdale Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated home in Halifax that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is really just dense render. Typically it is applied to red brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. Stucco is highly grand in appearance and is common on some Regency homes. Sometimes it can contain lime in it as well as animal fibres to stop cracks. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Halifax commonly report any number of problems such as trapped water resulting in internal damp problems. Other potential problems could involve sulphate attack from salts sucked out of underlying brickwork. Re-covering problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are becoming more difficult to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

Can we get English Garden Wall bond repair advice for the Victorian property we're purchasing? Does render make a difference?

Halifax brick-walled properties can indicate numerous defects, including DPC failure and cracks. One defect surveyors of brick property frequently address is rapidly deteriorating cement mortar, caused by sulphate attack. This may require outright demolition of the wall, if discovered. For more information, contact a local builder, A T G Construction of May View/Gloucester Road, Hartpury, Gloucester, GL19 3BT on 07976 271787.

For example, English bond, featuring alternating rows of long and short faces of bricks, but it is strongly advised that professional advice be sought prior to attempting repairs.
