HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Little Mill and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

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

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Little Mill property's general condition as well as including advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for Monk bond maintenance tips - can a property surveyor in Little Mill assist?

Brick-built conversions feature several advantages, but they will also show signs of both minor and serious issues. One serious matter is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Buckley R at 5 Gibson La, Kippax, Leeds, LS25 7BA should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 0113-286 8888.

For home purchasers in Little Mill seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks.

If the Little Mill surveyor does raise concerns about a brick wall defect or structural issue, it may be wise to speak to a builder before completion to assess the extent and cost of the work.

Roof defects identified during a survey

We're purchasing a structure in Little Mill , and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What aspects of the attic will be investigated?

This is a common concern for Little Mill home buyers who have had to shell out for major repairs in the past. Houses across Little Mill could unfortunately be experiencing roof maintenance problems, such as poor insulation. From ridge flashing to fascias, every part of the roof should be investigated, and any defects addressed as soon as possible.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Little Mill, but it is a health and safety necessity. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Conservation area

Are there any factors we would be advised to look out for if intending to buy a period property in Little Mill in conservation area, particularly with regards to property values?

There are many thousands of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are governed by the local authority.

A Building Surveyors are required by RICS to possess knowledge of local considerations and any effect they have with the property and its value. House prices are usually significantly higher due to them being largely unspoilt However many conservation areas are falling into disrepair e.g. the huge increase in street clutter

Surveyors will advise if the property is possibly is designated and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of your Homebuyer Report will advise suitable questions are carried out by your legal representation. Unauthorised developments to the building may also be commented on but these are really more a investigated by your conveyancer.
