HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Headingley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Headingley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Headingley property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing an old farmstead. Will the house's age be a concern?

Vernacular architecture can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Headingley structures showcasing traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to maintain. It is often the case that expert knowledge is necessary. Especially for , for example, a Grade II listed house, Traditional building materials may be required. This may increase the importance of getting a comprehensive building survey.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are planning to buy a property in Headingley and noticed that the kitchen floor was uneven, could this be evidence of subsidence? What subsidence issues does the Property Surveyor report on?

Subsidence refers to the movement of a home and its foundations. Subsidence may be confused with settlement. Settlement does occur in newer homes, and is rarely a cause for concern. Their weight can cause the ground beneath the foundations to compact. Additionally, most homes are built with a variety of materials, and these will have varying rates of shrinkage.

Subsidence is not always easy to identify, due to the fact that the usual signs could comfortably be caused by other factors. Signs of potential subsidence include new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.
