HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Heckmondwike and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey and is effectively the same survey.

If the Heckmondwike property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out significant alterations on the Heckmondwike property, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Heckmondwike property's state of repair in addition to advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Other external areas of the property

In the HomeBuyer Report, what will 'E9 - Other' include?

The RICS HomeBuyer Report is designed to be user-friendly, with a minimum of technical jargon. The report uses colour coded condition ratings to give house purchasers a clear understanding of to what extent each defect requires attention. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Heckmondwike home being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a Heckmondwike home does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

This category is used for external elements that require reporting which do not fit into the other categories. Rot and insect damage to a porch or conservatory's structure is an example of this.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are getting a ground floor apartment in Heckmondwike, does the home surveyor check for indications of flood damage?

Flooding has blighted the lives of thousands of owners in Heckmondwike and across the country; sensible owners and home purchasers in Heckmondwike are right to consider precautions. Your RICS surveyor may use several methods to determine if the Heckmondwike property in question is in danger, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the residential surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a house survey if the residential surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

Damage caused by high rainfall

How will we know what impact can heavy rain have on our new Heckmondwike home? Could it affect the property value?

I find it odd that the impact wet weather can have on houses is rarely paid due attention. Signs that gutters are damaged include water pooling below gutters, and may lead to warped floorboards or beams. In most cases, guttering issues are quite easy to resolve, if caught early. However, if the drains are disregarded, the resulting damage can lower the value of the property and become increasing harder to repair.
