HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Ilkley and which would be cheaper?

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

If the Ilkley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to make alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Ilkley property's general condition and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Ilkley house with stone walls. What should we be particularly aware of?

Purchasers in Ilkley should be aware that stone walls can be much weaker than they appear. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. There are two kinds of lime-based mortar, hydraulic and non-hydraulic. It essential that the type of mortar be identified before any work be attempted. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes fast replacement of any stones which have become loose.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
