HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Helmsley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Helmsley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations on the Helmsley property, you should you commission a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap, however it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Helmsley property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be worried about when purchasing a building next to a rubbish tip

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including commercial rubbish disposal. Of course nobody wants to live near one (most people do live within 1.5m of one!). Concerns might include structurally instability. Health problems such as birth defects have been associated to landfill sites .

Homebuyer reports in Helmsley will flag up structural defects connected with the site. Your conveyancing solicitor will commission conveyancing searches of the Landmark data sets and Ryedale Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The person in the flat below said that the had been a problem with rotten beams. What should we do about roof repairs?

This is frequently addressed by property surveyors. Many residential properties can, to the disappointment of their would-be owners, still suffer roofing woes. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the sheathing to the tie beams. The property surveyors could suggest that some of the faults must be dealt with immediately.

Roof repairs need not always be costly, but they should be budgeted for carefully. A building survey prior to exchange is highly recommended, so that you fully understand what expenses you will be facing. A roofing specialist with accreditation can provide a quote.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Helmsley home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding a garage)

The Homebuyer Report contains a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate. In order to determine the property's value your RICS valuer should use local Helmsley market factors and other things relating to the property for instance: accommodation Surveyors also examine construction methods and draw upon key assumptions like the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a nominal fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there aren't any expensive legal problems like there being no outstanding claims. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancing solicitor.

Further area assumptions, like services, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like industrial buildings, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
