HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Haxby and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Haxby property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does give exhaustive analysis of the Haxby property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

For more detailed advice you can get an instant Haxby Home Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Conservation area

Are there any things we need to be aware of if buying a converted flat in Haxby inside a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are 9, 300 official conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in Haxby must possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local issues and any bearing they have on the property. Prices will probably be higher owing to the areas being in good order.

Surveyors are expected note whether the building looks to be classified as such and Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are conducted by your conveyancer. Unconsented changes to the property will also be commented on, however these should be concern for the lawyer. Harrowells are a local firm situated at Westow House, York, North Yorkshire, YO32 3HS and may be happy help you with further information. Tel: 01904 760237

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the home I expect to move into I think we saw that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system; does a surveyor write anything on the electrics?

During a Haxby Home Survey your RICS surveyor will typically remark on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include a visual look-over of exposed areas of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other things, for example confirming the condition of the fitted electrical appliances like storage heaters. A check for the evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections carried out by an electrician will usually form part of the survey in Haxby. Looking at any evidence of the most recent Periodic Inspection Report handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Haxby .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour warned us that access to the loft could be a problem. Which issues relating to the loft will be considered?

Homes in the area in good condition could unfortunately be experiencing issues with the roof. From rafters to collar beams, every element of the roof should be reported on. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like a poor asphalt covering.

Expensive quotes for roofing jobs (such as replacing rotten rafters or soffits) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible. Speak to T & S Roofing of 1 Gregory Cl, Skelton, York, YO30 1XG on 01904 471380 to request a quote.
