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 .

Damage resulting from flooding

Does a Shipley chartered surveyor investigate signs of flooding damage?

Flooding in Shipley can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and property purchasers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the residential property in question is in danger.

Flood water can enter a Shipley home through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls. An awareness of characteristics of the Shipley area likely to affect the Shipley home also enables the surveyor to advise flooding may be a risk. The surveyor may ask the residents if the Shipley home has previously flooded. Note that the response to such enquires should not be exclusively relied upon.

Asbestos roof tiles

A friend's builder stated there may be asbestos roof gutters present in the home I am planning to purchase. Why would there be asbestos?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White are often building materials e.g. lagging.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good heat resistance properties, it may be found in insulation.

All forms are hazardous and can lead to lung cancer or asbestosis following prolonged exposure.

Care should be taken if asbestos is discovered never to break the asbestos and expert advice should be sought without delay. Never try to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Shipley survey. However they will mention potential asbestos during the Shipley survey and should suggest further investigation.

Traditionally built property

We are purchasing in Shipley. What will we need to think about when purchasing an old building? Will regular maintenance costs be higher?

Many buyers would be interested in owning property with real personality. For houses in Shipley built before the 20th Century, age, however, can create issues for homeowners, and Houses built with traditional methods can be costly to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. .

Construction materials, such as matching stone or wood, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of listed buildings. Contact the surveyor for more detail.
