HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Headingley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Headingley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Headingley property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

I suspect there may be a danger of asbestos insulation situated in the flat. Is this a major concern and will this be a hazard?

Asbestos is a dangerous fibrous structured mineral. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) are often building materials e.g. stove insulation.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic tiles. Technically all forms are ultimately pernicious and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. If found, care should be taken not to displace asbestos. Professional advice should be sought without delay.

Headingley Surveyors cannot confirm the existence asbestos on a Headingley home survey. They will report on the risk of asbestos during the survey and should offer advice.

Landfill site near home

What should I be aware of when purchasing a maisonette near to a refuse tip

Sites used for landfill come in many shapes and sizes for example: inert waste. Nobody would want to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Worries include heavy metals. Potential health concerns like congenital birth defects have been associated with landfill sites .

Headingley surveyors will find structural defects connected with the landfill. Your legal representative will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Leeds Local Authority and will advise you accordingly .

House Prices

Is £170, 300 in the right ball park price to pay for a detached property in LS16 in Headingley for and what will a surveyor evaluate when conducting a survey ?

There is a near endless list of things which could have a bearing on property values for example local employment opportunities or defects in the lease. You can try to analyse house prices achieved in the area for comparable properties.

This means house prices completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £180, 300, which is £10, 000 more than the price you are intending to pay (£172, 325 was the blended house/flat average). 4, Edgerton Road, Leeds, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS16 5JD a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £483, 500 .
