HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Harehills and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Harehills property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Harehills property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our property surveyor search for indications of flood damage?

Unfortunately, distance from water or height above sea level is no guarantee that a property will be secure against floods, and buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. The Home Buyers Survey may also, where appropriate, recommend maintenance.The GroundSure Flood Report is one of several risk screening reports designed to provide an overview of whether a residential property lies within an area of potential or previous flood risk. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the property owner or occupier, but this information may not be accurate.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we need to be conscious of when intending to buy a building in Harehills near a conservation area ?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas throughout England and Wales that are designated and monitored by local councils. Your surveyor are required by RICS to have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and the effect they have on the home. Property values is generally enhanced as a result of conservation areas retaining their original character. However many conservation areas are falling into disrepair for example - increasing amounts of scruffy green spaces

RICS surveyors are expected tell you if the home is/might be so designated and Section I of your Harehills Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are conducted by your conveyancer. Unapproved extensions to the property should be noted but these are really more a concern for your lawyer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there could be asbestos textured coatings being found in property. What is asbestos, can it be handled easily and does the building survey look at this?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials such as acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has excellent sound absorption properties, it may be found in acoustic ceilings for example. Technically all forms are potentially fatal and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken not to displace the asbestos and professional advice must be taken without delay. You should not try to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a survey. Surveyors will report on suspected asbestos during the Harehills survey and should recommend professional testing.
