HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Pudsey and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same survey.

If the Pudsey property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Pudsey property's condition as well as advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

What should we take notice of when purchasing older property in Pudsey? What should be budgeted for maintenance?

A building's age can be a cause of concern for would-be buyers, and Pudsey structures built using traditional methods can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Traditional building materials may also need to be sourced. This can be a good opportunity to discuss lowering the purchase price to cover repair costs. Speak to the surveyor for more detail. Built in around 1490, Calverley Hall in Pudsey is an example of a traditional Medieval-period property.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the early 40s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to create issues? Will a Pudsey Home Buyers Survey look into this?

There are a range of frequently-occurring defects associated with clay soil, with moisture changes in the soil and movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content being relatively common. Expansive and reactive types of clay soil can be troublesome. Expansive clay soil is particularly sensitive to shifts in water content, such as warped window frames in the drawing room.

Taking precautions, such as keeping standing water on the property in check, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable. The building foundations may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

Stone block wall damage

I am purchasing a house and the vendor has stated that it has been partially constructed with Doulting stone. Which major defects should we consider, and what will the survey reveal?

Ranging from Golconda Dolomitic Limestone to Rockingstone Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Issues which impact the lifespan of stone-built elements are as diverse as the stone varieties themselves.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared with lime-based mortar. Deterioration of lime mortar can often be the cause of a wall's failure and collapse. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as clearing of ivy-like plant life and weeds.
