HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Settle and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Settle property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Settle property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

The agent said there may be indications of an asbestos Fuse box concealed in the flat. What is asbestos and how is it remedied?

Asbestos is a deleterious silicate material. Some types are found in the building materials for example fireplace. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in fire doors. Technically all forms including Chrysotile are ultimately dangerous and might lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken not to disturb asbestos. Professional advice should be sought urgently. Never attempt to handle it yourself. Surveyors cannot test for asbestos during the survey. However they will report on the risk of asbestos and should advise accordingly.

Building Surveys on apartments

Is it best to get a full structural survey prior to buying a neglected thirties warehouse apartment near Settle?

Full Structural Surveys have been renamed by RICS as Building Surveys. A HomeBuyer Report is all you really need if investigating a post 1950s unmodified Settle apartment of standard construction materials and methods. A Building Survey is the suitable choice for the property described. After a thorough site survey of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings, the surveyor's formal report is sent to the purchaser providing comprehensive and salient advice about the condition of the building. Bear in mind that one or two survey no go areas exist with any residential survey - your local Settle surveyor wont be able to (unless safe to do so) open up the fabric of the apartment for example, or inspect any part that could risk personal injury.

House Prices

I want to buy a detached house in BD24, being marketed for £256, 061. What will a Settle RICS chartered surveyor evaluate in the process of a professional valuation ?

Any number of issues that can affect house prices from whether it is freehold, leasehold or share of freehold to whether the property is listed. As an indicator, one can try to put side by side house values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £242, 861, which is £13, 200 less than the asking price. The house/flat average was £236, 973. The Old School, Town Head, Austwick, Lancaster, Craven, North Yorkshire, LA2 8BS a detached property sold for £325, 000 .

An sensible way to get an impartial property valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service.
