HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a property in Kirkheaton and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Kirkheaton property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any significant alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Kirkheaton property's general condition as well as including advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

The property I am purchasing is built on clay soil. Will the HomeBuyer Report look into this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Kirkheaton house will have an impact. Issues range from shrinking of clay soil to movement of clay soil layers resulting from changes in their water content, both of which can put a house's foundations under great strain. There may be little evidence of underlying defects. For example, cracks along the bathroom floor may be benign, or a clue prompting a more

thorough investigation. A Kirkheaton surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Additional strengthening or support of the structure's foundations may be required, including underpinning or piling.

Damage resulting from flooding

What's the danger of flooding in Kirkheaton. Can a house surveyor investigate possible flooding?

Flooding in Kirkheaton can cause severe damage to both contents and property, and owning a house in or near a high-risk area can mean higher insurance premiums. It is strongly recommended that a home is protected, before flooding begins. In addition, the home survey may recommend maintenance.Preventative measures can include costly but effective solutions e.g. lime-based plaster. The surveyor will usually recommend that the property purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a property in Kirkheaton. Should we get a residential surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. When purchasing a property, this matter should be borne in mind. It may not be obvious that a property is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked, for example, skin irritation or spots of blood on bedsheets may indicate the presence of bed bugs. As some pests can be very stubborn, knowing the risks, and chance of success before you buy is essential. Rather than pulling out, it may be possible to agree a reduction in the purchase price to cover the cost of remedy.
