HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Elland and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same comprehensive survey.

If the Elland property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Elland property's general condition and it includes more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

If in doubt why not obtain a Elland Homebuyers Survey Quote or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to a member of our team.

Traditionally built property

I am buying an old cottage. What effect will the home's rafter roof have on maintenance?

Vernacular architecture can be problematic, and Elland houses built with traditional methods can be a drain to upkeep. You should bear in mind that expert knowledge may be needed. Construction materials, such as stone quarried in the Elland area, may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of , for example, a Grade II listed house. Mention this to your surveyor for more information. Built in the 16th century, Old Hall, Solar in Elland is a fine example of a Post Medieval-period property.

Asbestos roof tiles

The estate agent stated there may be a risk of blue asbestos pipe lagging insulation at the home. Should we be worried?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous material of several naturally occurring materials. Some types may be in building materials such as vinyl flooring. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has very good tensile strength qualities and it may be found in asbestos blocks.

All forms are deadly and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If found, care should be taken never to remove the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken as soon as possible. Never endeavour to disturb it yourself. Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos on a Elland HomeBuyer report. Your surveyor will note possible asbestos and should inform you of the options.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Elland and are looking for properties built from Sussex bond brick. What advice would you give? Is age a factor?

Brick-walled flats in Elland can be subject to diverse problems, such as sulphate attack. The chartered surveyor will mention these, with repair advice also supplied. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is diagonal cracks which widen as they move upwards. These may result from ground movement, or where a timber element of the wall has rotted away. Drivers Construction Services Ltd at 31 Waterside, Appleton, Warrington, WA4 3BS should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 07511 503010.

Elland home purchasers may need to consider that a range of courses arrangements and colours may be found throughout England and Wales, and as such, repairs may be more involved than they appear.
