HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Heckmondwike and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Heckmondwike property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the Heckmondwike property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Heckmondwike property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

We are buying a loft-conversion in Heckmondwike - What will our chartered surveyor keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by Heckmondwike home buyers who are aware that property can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from roof battens to gables. Factors like literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended are particularly troublesome for flat roofed property.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like thatching, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the

consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a roofing specialist for the job itself. Call Cooke Roofing Contractors of 75 Firthcliffe Rd, Liversedge, WF15 6HS on 01924 502067 for an estimate.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My friend spotted signs of pests in the bedrooms - What can we do?

Heckmondwike homes are generally free of infestations, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Evidence may not be easy to find, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Remedies to an infestation can include destruction of tainted materials.RICS guidelines on the issue of infestations are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your RICS surveyor.

Gas flame

Will the local surveyor report on the state of repair of the gas installations?

A RICS surveyor will visually look at the accessible parts of the system. The survey will include the location of the meter at the building, as well as gas connected installations like balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. Should there be any external fittings they will not however be detached. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, should there be any worries about gas fittings or if you suspect a gas issue, call a gas engineer.

Heckmondwike based gas engineers include David Mitchell of 45 Hollinbank Lane, Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire Tel. 07775626390 and Plumbing & Maintenance Services of 19, Trueman Avenue, Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire Tel. 07747534584.
