Do you need a Home Survey ? Which one is the right choice?

HomeBuyer Report

Should we choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Dewsbury and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is effectively the same.

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

If you intend to make an extension on the property, RICS advise you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap, but it does offer a thorough analysis of the Dewsbury property's condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Dewsbury House Survey Quote via our website or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Substandard guttering

On the HomeBuyer Report, what might 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' include?

The format of the RICS HomeBuyer Report is clear and easy to read. As buyers in Dewsbury are unlikely to be experts in local building techniques and materials themselves, the report is written with as little jargon as possible. Your property surveyor will mark each aspect of the property included in Section E with either a green, orange or red rating, to indicate to what extent each defect requires attention. A fairly common example may be leaking downspouts. External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually, where access is possible. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as blocked drains below ground.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

As well as reporting on condition, will I get a valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as rebuilding a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

The Homebuyer Report includes an independent valuation and a reinstatement cost as part of the report. To fully consider the value of the property your RICS valuer will relate to in depth understanding of the Dewsbury market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. accommodation The RICS surveyor will also consider construction methods and draw upon other assumptions like the building connected to mains services such as electricity.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out. The surveyor relies on standard assumptions that there are no major legal issues for example Rights of access and egress over all communal areas. Such concerns will be clarified by your conveyancer.

Further area assumptions like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to Dewsbury environmental problems like industrial buildings, also being considered.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what effect should wet conditions have on our new building in Dewsbury? If there is necessary work, will they be costly to fix?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However wet conditions and the effect it can have on houses in Dewsbury are not given the attention it deserves by property buyers. If you have only been to the home in on a dry day, problems are unlikely to be visible.

The good news is that these defects are quite easy to resolve, if caught early. If left untreated, however, the damage will impact both the home's value, and the residents' enjoyment of the property.
