HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Pontefract and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same.

If the Pontefract property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give a thorough analysis of the Pontefract property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Pontefract Homebuyers Survey Quote on our site or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to our survey team.

Traditionally built property

What should we pay attention to when purchasing a house built in around 1720 in Pontefract? What should be budgeted for upkeep?

A building's age can sometimes be an issue. Properties built with traditional methods can be unexpectedly hard to upkeep. You should consider that expert knowledge may be needed, and it could also be necessary to find Traditional building materials. If the home you are buying may require specialist maintenance, contact your RICS surveyor for more information. Erected between 1656 and 1582, Pontefract Castle, Main Guard in Pontefract is a traditional castle barbican of the time.

House Prices

I would like to purchase a detached property in WF8. The vendor is asking £159, 220. What things will a Pontefract RICS surveyor consider when conducting a survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect the price of property ranging from whether alterations have planning permission to the modernity of the kitchen. You can try to benchmark prices values recorded in the same area for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £139, 720, which is £19, 500 less than the amount you are paying. The average for houses and flats combined was £135, 977. 7, Willow Lane East, Featherstone, Pontefract, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF7 6BE a detached property was purchased for £201, 000 .

An impartial way for you to get an independent property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard. A surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The vendor said that deteriorated flashing had been a concern, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What does the property surveyor investigate during the survey?

Pontefract property in otherwise fine condition can often hide roof maintenance problems, such as incorrectly applied waterproofing. All aspects of the roof should be reviewed, from the clay tiles to the parapet walls, and where the matter is serious, it should be rectified promptly.

The expense of a complete replacement, or other major roof work, means that some owners put it off for as long as possible. This is a false economy, as such issues can lead to more severe general structural problems. A Pontefract builder with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.
