HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Huddersfield and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Huddersfield property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Huddersfield property's condition in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Shocking Electrics

When I saw the building I am interested to move into it appeared that there were damaged electrical sockets - does a surveyor write anything on electrical system condition?

When carrying out a Home Survey in Huddersfield the home surveyor will usually remark on the overall electrical system if it appears that they are in an unsatisfactory state.

This will include an overview of the superficial sections of the wiring, fusebox etc. and other areas like verifying the condition of fixed electrical appliances, for example heaters or verifying the condition of any visible wiring a sample of the range of light fittings and switch gear. .

Examining the documents from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will be part of the survey.

The IEE advise a Periodic Inspection be completed every 10 years (or every 5 if letting out).

Gas flame

Will the qualified RICS surveyor check out the condition of the gas appliances?

A RICS chartered surveyor will visually check out any accessible parts of the system. This will include whether the mains is connected where relevant, as well as gas affiliated appliances like fixed external ventilation hearths. Any external fittings or housings will not however be taken off. Anything related to gas should be handled with care as it is potentially unsafe and if there are any worries about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Roof defects identified during a survey

I have put in an offer on a Huddersfield house with a loft conversion, and we are wary of potential roofing issues. What advice would the Huddersfield surveyor give in their report?

This is a common concern for buyers with a roofing 'horror story' from a previous home. A large number of properties could feature roofing woes. From the eaves to the tie beams, the status of the whole roof should be reviewed. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Huddersfield, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the RICS surveyors will look for a range of signs, including being literally flat, as opposed to on a small incline so that water can drain correctly.

High quotes for roofing jobs (such as wholesale replacement) 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 roofing contractor with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote. Speak to Stead Lane of 102 Upper Brow Rd, Huddersfield, HD1 4UP on 07766 238112 for more information.
