HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Liversedge and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Liversedge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liversedge property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

For more information you can get a Liversedge House Survey Quote or call us 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Deteriorated timber

On the HomeBuyer Report, what are common Condition Rating 1 defects for joinery and finishes?

Green, or condition rating 1, indicates that no repair is currently needed, but this does not mean that no future work is required. Seasonal checks may still be appropriate to prevent deterioration. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific Liversedge property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. The structured format for the HomeBuyer Report is intended to produce a useful and comprehensive survey for any home purchasers. As a result, some sections are omitted where they do not apply to the surveyed property.

In Liversedge, examples include warped wood sidings. They are visually inspected with the aid of binoculars where appropriate The condition of decorations to all joinery elements are reported on.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building warned us that access to the roof of the home could be hard to organise, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Which issues relating to the roof of the home will be investigated?

Questions like this are often asked of property surveyors by buyers in Liversedge who are aware that property could unfortunately be experiencing problems like mould. From concrete tiles to parapet walls, every element of the roof must be reviewed. Your property surveyors may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Fixing a leaking roof can be the cause of serious accidents, which is why modern contractors refuse to work without scaffolding. Prior to exchange, it may be worth sourcing from a builder in Liversedge a quote for any suggested work.

Stone block wall damage

Can property built with stone generate lots of maintenance costs for owners? Are there any issues that need to be investigated, and what does the survey cover?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including erosion of pointing joints. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Stone quarried in the area is common to local homes in Liversedge, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Buyers should consider that stone can have a great effect on the long-term viability of a property or extension, resulting in higher repair costs in future.

For example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be replacing missing or badly worn stones. Stone walls can also be problematic for buyers interested in extending or altering their new home, as matching stone may be hard or costly to source.

If, in the course of carrying out maintenance, you need further advice, contact a local stonemason or specialist. G B Construction Ltd of Hare Park Mills, Hare Pk La, Liversedge, WF15 8EP, for example, could assist.
