HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Shipley and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Shipley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Shipley property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

My wife and I are hoping to be investing in a detached house in Shipley (BD17) which is being marketed for £185, 931. What things does a qualified RICS surveyor consider when estimating house prices in Shipley ?

There are a huge number of issues which could have a bearing on property values e.g. whether any associated planning permissions come with the property or the amount of light it receives. You can try to put side by side house values achieved in Shipley at the same time for similar houses.

The average house price recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £160, 031, which is £25, 900 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The average factoring in houses and

flats was £151, 510. 34, Oakdale Grove, Shipley, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD18 1NX a detached property sold for £325, 000 .

In order for you to get an accurate and professional home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation as standard.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect can heavy rain have on our new house? Also, where there [var10], what should we do?

Regular rainfall is common in Shipley and across the country, but the effect which heavy rainfall has on a property is often overlooked. For example, rusted iron elements strongly suggest that the drainage are worth a closer look. Poor drainage can lead to overflowing or blocked sewage.

Whether buying in Shipley or elsewhere, difficult drainage does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to fix. Where this is left untreated, the damage becomes increasing costly to remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

I am looking for brick wall repair tips - can a property surveyor in Shipley assist?

Shipley brick-walled residences can show signs of considerable issues, ranging from signs of movement to erosion. These issues will be mentioned in the report, with repair advice also supplied.

A defect often found is damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork.

To arrange a quote for repairs, contact a local specialist, e.g. H & E Bricklaying Contractors Ltd at 5 Dudley Crescent, Wolverhampton, WV11 3BY on 01902 733825.

For buyers with an eye for detail, less used styles of brick course include basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. The advice of a brickwork specialist should be sought before attempting repairs.
