HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Mirfield and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is basically the same the same.

If the Mirfield property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Mirfield property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Gas flame

Does a qualified RICS surveyor give details on the safety of the gas heaters?

Your will locate and visually check out any accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the meter location/position at the building, as well as gas related appliances e.g. the possibility of asbestos. However, the Mirfield local surveyor won't remove external fittings and won't carry out any tests whatsoever on the system. Gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any worries about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Mirfield based gas engineers include Jamie Steadman Plumbing and Heating of 41 Northway, London Park, Mirfield, West Yorkshire Tel. 07852300665 and Philip Berry of 2 Ebor Gardens, Mirfield Tel. 07791751035.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent mentioned subsidence might be a problem affecting the home. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence issues does the Mirfield Surveyor report on?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. Generally, a builder will return to a new house within a few months in order to repair settlement damage.

Cracks to a sitting room are a plain indication of subsidence. Fortunately, these are in many cases benign. In extreme conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled Mirfield house. Are there specific potential issues to consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

From Swaledale Fossil Limestone to Naylor Hill Sandstone, there are many types of stone used in the construction of homes in this country. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like displacement will vary with the particular type of stone. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes in Mirfield, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar, which may also require attention. Maintenance tips include use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.
