HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Low Moor and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Low Moor property is a flat or maisonette, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any works or an extension on the Low Moor property, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with comprehensive details of the Low Moor property's state of repair as well as an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a conversion and the seller has suggested that it has been built with Clipsham stone. Are there any matters that need to be investigated?

The sturdy appearance of stone walls may hide serious concerns. Faults common to poorly maintained stone walls can include weathered stone. 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.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.

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.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, consider a stonemason or other knowledgeable contractor in the area. For example, A & S at Carr La, Low Moor, Bradford, BD12 0QS.

Timber damage by insect larvae

My partner spotted signs of pests in the kitchen - What advice should we get?

Pests like vermin may sometimes seem a small, even irrelevant, matter when buying in Low Moor. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. Signs may not be obvious. As an example, a moth infestation may not be found for months after purchase, and even if treated, may never be fully eradicated. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases. Your home surveyor may report on signs of infestation, but if you have specific concerns they can be taken into account.

Shocking Electrics

When we saw the unmodernised property we are meaning to buy, it looked like there is an unsafe electrical system; does the Low Moor surveyor write anything on any faults with the electrics?

When performing a Low Moor Homebuyer Report the home surveyor should usually comment on the electrics if it is apparent that the electrics are in an unsatisfactory state of repair.

This should include a visual view of the superficial areas of the wiring as well as concerns such as making sure that supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Examining the documents from the most recent Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the survey. Verifying the location of the documents from the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually be part of the survey.

The Institute of Electrical Engineers (IEE) suggest a periodic test be conducted at least every 10 years (5 if letting).
