HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Horbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Horbury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Horbury property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What sort of thing will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered home in Horbury that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is really just a specific type of render. Commonly stucco is layered over underlying red brick that dries to an attractive smooth appearance that resembles stone. The coating is very aesthetic and is found on Regency buildings. Stucco is often prone to defect and Surveyors in Horbury can report defects e.g. lateral cracking that describes the underlying mortar joints.

Another example of problems associated with stucco can possibly result be when water enters beneath DPCs that causes detachment. Fixing problems with stucco can be expensive as craftsmen are becoming rarer.

Damage resulting from flooding

Will our Horbury HomeBuyer Report look for flooding damage, or if nearby homes have been affected?

Flooding has become a major issue, not least because last year was the second wettest on record, and it is not clear that reasonably-priced flooding insurance will be available in years to come. It is easily possible to assess whether a house is susceptible to flooding via any of a number of routes.

Flood water can enter a home in Horbury through a number of routes, including air bricks, poorly fitted doors and windows, and seepage through external walls.

Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. raised door thresholds. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the vendor or agent, but this information may not be accurate.

The Environment Agency have updated the status for the River Calder from Brighouse to Castleford including Chickenley Beck, Spring Mill Beck and Waindike, near Horbury, to 'No warnings' on 2/01/13.

House Prices

Is £125, 672 a reasonable amount to pay for a flat in Horbury in WF4 for and what considerations will a qualified surveyor take into account when estimating house prices in Horbury ?

A myriad of factors exist that can add to or subtract from house prices for instance anti social neighbours or if there is any evidence of fungal decay. It may help to benchmark prices the prices of flat recorded in the same area for similar flats. The average flat price completed between Jul and Oct 2012 was £101, 272, which is £24, 400 less than the price being asked. The average factoring in houses and flats was £138, 976. 6, Church Gardens, Middlestown, Wakefield, Wakefield, West Yorkshire, WF4 4FD a new build leasehold flat recently sold for £95, 000 .

The most accurate way for you to get a professional house valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as a core component. A chartered surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme. The scheme is intended to raise consumer confidence and improves standards.
