HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Guiseley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Guiseley property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Guiseley property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould brings up bad memories for us - What does a Guiseley surveyor pay attention to during the survey?

Questions like this are often asked of house surveyors by property purchasers who are aware that property can be blighted by problems like cracked and loose slates or tiles. Every element should be checked, e.g. fascias. Difficulties can often arise in the case of flat roofs, caused by a slope of less than 12 to 15 degrees.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. A contractor in Guiseley with accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we need to be wary of when purchasing a flat in Guiseley in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils. Guiseley surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have with the building. Property Prices tends to be more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas being preserved.

Surveyors are trained to advise you if the house is/might be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Hewitts Ingham are based in, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS19 6HN will be able to advise. Tel: 0113 250 5099

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Guiseley include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and what will it include?

Guiseley Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. When calculating the value of the property the valuer will factor in awareness of the Guiseley property market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate materials used and make certain other assumptions, for example it is connected to mains services. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any expensive legal issues like building regulations having been complied. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Additional local Guiseley area conjectures, like service connections, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't 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.
