HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Sowerby Bridge and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Sowerby Bridge property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Sowerby Bridge property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I intend to purchase a flat in Sowerby Bridge (HX2) for around £107, 489. What considerations will a Sowerby Bridge qualified RICS surveyor allow for on a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property from living on flood plain to whether the property is overlooked. One method is to put side by side flat prices achieved in Sowerby Bridge at the same time for similar properties. The average flat price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £102, 389, which is £5, 100

less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £153, 953. Oats Royd Mill, 43, Dean House Lane, Luddenden, Halifax, Calderdale, West Yorkshire, HX2 6RL recently sold for £230, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).

Gas flame

Does the Sowerby Bridge surveyor give details on the condition or the safety of the gas mains supply?

A RICS surveyor will visually check the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as the routing of any gas pipes as part of the Sowerby Bridge survey, as well as gas related appliances like balanced flues. External fittings or housings will not be removed. Most people are aware that gas is potentially hazardous, if you have any concerns about gas, call a gas safe engineer.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are getting a residence in Sowerby Bridge, does the RICS surveyor consider water damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: ITN), and buyers and owners are understandably concerned. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the house in question is in danger. The property survey may also, where appropriate, advise on urgent repairs.Less expensive preventative measures include door guards. The building surveyor will usually recommend that the buyers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.
