HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Kirkheaton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kirkheaton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Kirkheaton property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Kirkheaton, what suggestions can a surveyor in Kirkheaton make for buildings with Diagonal bond walls? Is brick more susceptible to the weather?

Brick property in Kirkheaton will indicate a range of defects. An especially severe issue is diagonal cracking caused by ground movement. A T G Construction may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at May View/Gloucester Road, Hartpury, Gloucester, GL19 3BT or 07976 271787.

Other aspects of a property which may feature decorative include ornate Della Robbia bond paving. The apparent simplicity of brick repairs compared to plumbing or rewiring can lead to a DIY effort making a situation worse. Seek advice before undertaking such work, and do not disregard your surveyors advice.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is concern white asbestos ceiling material in existence at the flat. What is asbestos, are there any health risks, can it be treated and does the survey look at this?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials including boiler cupboard.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has very good heat resistance qualities and it may be found in boards around windows. Technically all forms are ultimately potentially fatal and might lead to lung cancer or fibrosis if inhaled over sustained periods.

If found, care should be taken never to displace it and expert advice must be taken urgently. On no account endeavour to disturb it yourself.

Surveyors do not tell you whether there is asbestos during a Kirkheaton building survey. However, surveyors will note suspected asbestos during the survey and should inform you of the options.

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1850s converted barn with stone walls. What potential issues must we watch out for, and what will the survey reveal?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including displacement. Issues including displacement affect many stone-walled Kirkheaton homes. 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. In addition, lime mortar may feature in the building's construction. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes using traditional techniques when making repairs to the fabric of older buildings. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Nostell Quarry, Swine Lane, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF4 1QH, which quarries Clay & Shale, for details. Call 01924 866123 for more information.

To find a specific quarried stone, consider a stonemason or other knowledgeable contractor in the area. For example, KGS Stone Ltd at 16 Penistone Rd, Kirkburton, Huddersfield, HD8 0RB may be able to assist.
