HomeBuyer Report

Should I book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Baildon and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Baildon property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Baildon property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are purchasing an 1830s property in Baildon with stone walls. Are there any major issues that we should be aware of?

External wall maintenance is essential to the health of homes in Baildon. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction.

Regular stone walls are built with prepared or cut stone, called ashlar, and are often easier to maintain than irregular walls. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, slate is more damp resistant than many other forms of stone, as is granite. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Odda Lane Quarry, Odda Lane, Hawksworth, Guiseley, Leeds, LS20 8NZ for details. Call 01535 610776 for more information.

Damaged Render

What problems will the RICS Surveyor be looking for on a roughcast rendered (stucco) regency house in Baildon.

Stucco is in fact just smooth type of render. Commonly stucco is applied to brick hardens to form a smooth and attractive finish. The finish is highly beautiful and is common on some Georgian properties. It is almost exactly the same as plaster. Sometimes it can contain lime (which makes it set harder) in it as well as a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Baildon Building Surveys sometimes report potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when it is exposed to on-going weathering which gets saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Remedying Stucco problems may be surprisingly expensive as despite the craft being thousands of years old, the skills are getting more difficult to find.

Conservation area

Will there be any issues I need to look into if purchasing a building in Baildon in a conservation area, particularly in relation to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country which are designated by the local authority. Your surveyor need to have knowledge of local area issues and the connection they have with the home. The value of homes is generally more than prices outside the area because of the areas being in their original state.

Surveyors are expected tell you whether the building looks like it may be in a conservation area and Section I of a Baildon Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted by your solicitor. Unconsented modifications to the property will also be advised in your survey but these are really more a concern for your legal representative. Ison Harrison are a local firm situated at 65 Victoria Road, Bradford, West Yorkshire, LS20 8DQ will be able to advise further. Tel:
