HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in Leyburn and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same.

If the Leyburn property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, you should you select a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Leyburn property's general condition in addition to an opinion on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Leyburn, and think we saw signs of pests in the lounge - Should we get a residential surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months, sliverfish (lepisma saccharina), are rarely visible during the day. They will digest paper and wallpaper paste, but are more a symptom of damp than a serious problem themselves. Remedies to an infestation can include use of poison and destruction of tainted materials.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does the Leyburn home survey include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for rebuilding permanent outbuildings) and how is it worked out

Homebuyer Reports include a property valuation and a "reinstatement cost". When calculating the market value the surveyor will call upon in depth understanding of the Leyburn market and other considerations relating to the property e.g. general condition The valuer will also consider construction type and make certain key assumptions such as the property is connected to mains services such as water. Surveyors disregard things like furnishings, for example curtains.

Further area conjectures, like water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant environmental concerns like flood plains, 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.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are getting a home in Leyburn, does the home surveyor check for water damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: Evening Standard). Both buyers and home owners in areas exposed to flooding are right to be worried. A surveyor has a number of options to assess whether a property is vulnerable, and a property surveyor will advise on repairs or preventative measures. Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the house surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the residential property is at risk.
