HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in West Yorkshire and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the West Yorkshire property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the West Yorkshire property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the West Yorkshire property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a home built West Cornwall granite. What related issues should we be aware of?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Stone quarried in the area is common to local properties, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. This external aspect will usually be supported by a rubble or brick wall. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

To request additional information, contact a local stonemason or specialist, such as Northern Stones Sales, The Stone Yard, Scotchman Rd, Bradford, BD9 5DD (Tel: 01274 722000).

House Prices

Is £119, 709 within the right sort of area amount to pay for a property in BD9 for and what things does a West Yorkshire chartered surveyor evaluate when calculating house prices in West Yorkshire ?

A myriad of factors exist that can affect property values including the state (of neglect) of exterior or the height of ceilings. It may help to compare with house prices achieved in the area for similar houses.

This means house prices recorded at the Land Registry in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £115, 309, which is £4, 400 less than the amount you are intending to pay (£110, 862 was the blended house/flat average). 92, Plantation Drive, Bradford, Bradford, West Yorkshire, BD9 6SG a detached property sold for £224, 950 .

The most reliable way for you to get a formal home valuation is with a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as standard.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor said subsidence might be worth checking affecting the flat. What subsidence issues will the Home Buyers Survey look into?

Subsidence is the movement of the foundations of a structure which compromises its structural integrity. Most structures will experience cracking at some stage. In general, homes are constructed from a range of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

In clay soil regions, drought can cause the water table to drop. This dries out and shrinks the clay, putting a strain on the foundations and which can result in movement. On the inside, keep an eye out for new or growing cracks in exterior brickwork.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution. The removal of trees may make the problem worse, however, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Place pine, birch and cherry trees, for example, at least 10m away. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. If the surveyor cannot give you a conclusive diagnosis, they will recommend that you engage the services of a structural engineer.
