HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bingley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Bingley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Bingley property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

I am purchasing a Bingley house and am quite worried that there is a danger of subsidence. Can your Bingley Building Survey consider this, and what defects will be reported on?

Factors from rising damp to wood boring insects can cause difficulties for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of several issues. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including severe changes in the water table level. Evidence of clay soil-related problems can sometimes be found throughout a structure. The real impact of this could reveal itself as anything from unremarkable warping of floorboards, to complete structural failure. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. The building foundations

may need extra support in some cases. A surveyor can confirm if this is necessary, as it can be a lengthy process.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Do all Bingley surveys include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate and how is it calculated?

A Homebuyer Report on a Bingley property will contain a valuation in addition to a reinstatement cost as part of the report. When calculating the value of the property the surveyor will use area knowledge and other considerations about the property for instance: style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate construction methods and will use other assumptions like there being no significant defects. A Building survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. It will also be assumed that there are no serious legal problems e.g. there being no outstanding claims. Such concerns will be unravelled by your conveyancer.

Further Bingley conjectures, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant Bingley environmental concerns like nearby railway tracks, which will also be factored in.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Is it the right choice to choose a full structural survey prior to investing in a un-loved seventies garden maisonette in Bingley?

Full Structural Surveys are now called the Building Surveys. A Building Survey is the most appropriate choice of home survey if buying a modified property, for example a tatty house. It will typically give relevant professional advice concerning the property's state of repair and any defects a thorough inspection of the accessible parts.
