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 .

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would be advised to look out for if buying a converted flat in Heckmondwike near a conservation area?

There are thousands of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local authority. Surveyors in Heckmondwike must have knowledge of local factors and the relation may have with the home. Prices is, more often than not, enhanced due to the areas being in their original state. However many areas have been neglected and are in shoddy condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Surveyors will inform you if the planned purchase looks like it may be so designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will suggest the proper questions are conducted by the solicitor or conveyancer. Unauthorised changes to the property may also be advised, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Stanley Hays are a local firm situated at 2 Oldfield Lane, Kirklees, West Yorkshire, WF16 0JQ should be happy to help. Tel: 01924 403809

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and what does it include?

Heckmondwike Homebuyer Reports an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the survey. To estimate the market value the valuer will take into account local property market knowledge and other things about the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and will use key assumptions such as there being no significant defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee ; call for more info. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The valuation also assumes that there aren't any significant legal issues for example the tenure being as indicated (e.g commonhold). Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancer.

Further Heckmondwike conjectures, such as use of communal facilities or the access roads not being in private control, are made as well as any significant environmental issues like nearby railway tracks, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Shocking Electrics

When I went to see the period property I intend to purchase, it appeared that there is an old fuse board - does a the Heckmondwike surveyor go into detail on the wiring and fusebox?

During a Home Survey in Heckmondwike the RICS surveyor will usually mention the condition of the electrics if it appears that the electrics are in an unsafe state of repair. This will include an overview inspection (without removing any fittings) of any uncovered parts of the wiring or fusebox on top of concerns such as reporting on the condition of the fixed appliances e.g. heaters or checking the condition of a sample of switch gear.

Verifying the existence of any evidence of a test on the condition of the electrical connections handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Heckmondwike.

The IEE suggest a Periodic Inspection be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if renting out).
