HomeBuyer Report

Should I choose a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Harrogate and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Harrogate property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make an extension, it would be better that you go for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will provide you with an in-depth analysis of the Harrogate property's condition as well as including an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

What advice would the surveyor give for a 80s property built from brick walls? Does brick decay faster in Harrogate weather?

Brick homes experience several common problems. This could be anything from sulphate expansion to weathering. For example, wall tie failure. This occurs when ties supporting old cavity walls rust, leading to horizontal cracks and separation of the internal and eternal leaves of the wall and may require immediate attention. D & J Bricklayers at 5 Abbey Rd, Simpson, Milton Keynes, MK6 3AE should give an estimate for any work. Call them on 01908 711740.

As an example, Dutch bond or Scottish bond are both used in Harrogate homes.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould has created issues for us in the old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What should we keep an eye out for during the investigation?

Homes in Harrogate in good condition can be blighted by difficulties with the roof, for example, wet rot. From wind braces to purlins, every part of the roof should be investigated. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Harrogate, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the Harrogate surveyors will look for a range of signs, including badly installed felting.

It may be inconvenient to employ scaffolding to perform repairs, especially in the busy parts of Harrogate, but it is a health and safety necessity. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Harrogate roofing contractor for the job itself. Call Towler Bros of 10 Coniston Rd, Harrogate, HG1 4SL on 01423 886436 for an estimate.

House Prices

Is £292, 418 a good price to buy a house in HG2 for and What things will a Harrogate qualified RICS surveyor evaluate when conducting a professional valuation ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on house prices, for example the state (of neglect) of exterior or the amount of light it receives. As an indicator, one can try to compare with the prices of house recorded in Harrogate for similar properties.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between July and October in 2012 was £276, 818, which is £15, 600 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £258, 664. 1, Lodge Court, Killinghall, Harrogate, Harrogate, North Yorkshire, HG3 2WX a detached home sold for £320, 000 .

The best way for you to get an accurate property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a professional valuation by default. A local surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.
