HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Harehills and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Harehills property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Harehills property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Gas flame

Will the RICS surveyor check the serviceability of the gas heaters?

Your local surveyor will locate and visually check the easily accessible parts of the system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the meter is in an escape route at the property, as well as gas related fittings for example - prefabricated flues. External fittings won't be dislodged. Of course, gas is potentially dangerous, if you have any worries about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Harehills? Could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is usually overlooked by purchasers. Signs that downspouts are worth a closer look include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Poor drainage can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

In most cases, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance)

A Homebuyer Report on a Harehills building will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a Reinstatement Cost as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will pair local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water. 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. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local area assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to local environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.
