HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a home in Kirkby Lonsdale and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Kirkby Lonsdale property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap however it does provide you with comprehensive details of the Kirkby Lonsdale property's general condition and it includes information on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of reconstructing a retaining wall) and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include an independent valuation as well as a reinstatement cost. To properly appraise the market value your independent surveyor will combine local Kirkby Lonsdale market factors and other considerations relating to the property for instance: state of repair Your Kirkby Lonsdale surveyor will also consider construction methods and will make certain key assumptions like there would be no cause to alter the valuation revealed by inspecting parts not inspected. Surveyors don't value certain things like furnishings e.g. carpets.

Additional local area conjectures like connection to sewers, are made in addition to environmental concerns like the property being underneath a flight path, which will also be factored in. 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.

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent mentioned that the had been issues with wet rot. What should we look into during the survey?

This is a common concern for buyers. A large number of properties could feature difficulties with the roof, for example, incorrectly applied waterproofing. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from wind braces to dormer windows. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Kirkby Lonsdale, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the house surveyors will look for a range of signs, including literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like loft insulation, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A quote (or several) for any necessary work should be acquired as soon as possible.

Gas flame

Does a RICS surveyor advise on the condition or the safety of the gas supply?

Your RICS surveyor will visually look at the easily accessible parts of the gas system. A surveyor will want to inspect the meter location/position as part of the Kirkby Lonsdale survey, as well as gas connected fittings like chimney breasts. Your Kirkby Lonsdale local surveyor won't remove the gas fittings nor will the surveyor conduct any tests on the system. Of course, gas can be dangerous, should you have any concerns about gas, call an engineer.
