HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Knottingley and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Knottingley property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out alterations, you should you opt for a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give you comprehensive details of the Knottingley property's condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Knottingley, what suggestions can a Knottingley surveyor make for property constructed with English bond walls?

Brick-built Knottingley apartments do benefit from many advantages. Unfortunately, they also suffer from both minor and serious issues, from weathering to crumbling mortar. Defects like these ought to be referenced in the survey. A defect requiring immediate attention is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork. Wilkinson Derek may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at 3 Alexandra Terr, Tiverton, EX16 5JS or 01884 243438.

For example, rowlock, which is often found at the top of a wall. 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.

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Knottingley Surveyor examine on a stucco rendered Victorian semi detached home in Knottingley.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is in fact just a smooth and flat render. Commonly it is applied to brick hardens to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco render is highly appealing and is was often applied to Victorian homes. It can contain lime in it as well as a plastic under mesh to help stop cracks. it can be problematic and Knottingley Building Surveys frequently discover potentially expensive to remedy problems which might include trapped water leading to the render failing.

Another example of problems associated with stucco might be when the application has been taken down to ground level and bypasses the Damp Proof Course (DPC). Re-applying problems may be dear as skilled tradesmen are getting rarer.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations I would be advised to check on if intending to buy a building in Knottingley in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are nearly 10, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are overseen by the local authority.

Home Buyers Surveys in Knottingley must have sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and any effect they have on the home and its value. Prices is, more often than not, enhanced owing to them being unspoilt. However a growing number are falling into shoddy condition e.g. the removal front garden walls

Property surveyors will report if the house might be is so classified and Section I of the Knottingley Homebuyer Report will recommend additional enquiries are raised by your conveyancer. Unsympathetic developments that do not have Local Authority approval will also be commented on but these are really more a concern for your legal representative. Heptonstalls are based in 7-15 Gladstone Terrace, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, DN14 5AH and may be prepared to give you some pointers. Tel: 01405 765 661
