HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Morley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Morley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any major works on the property, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it will give you a thorough analysis of the Morley property's general condition and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

I am buying an old warehouse conversion. What should be budgeted for maintenance?

The age of a structure can be problematic, and Morley property showcasing traditional methods can be surprisingly expensive to upkeep. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced. If you are uncertain, speak to your building surveyor for further advice. Built between 1660 and 1660, Stubley Farm East Barn, Southern end is an example of a traditional barn in Morley.

House Prices

There is a flat in LS27 - Morley on for £117, 200. What factors will Morley surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Morley ?

There is a vast array of things that can affect property values like the square footage or issues with drainage. It can help to consider prices achieved in the area for similar flats. The average flat price recorded in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £94, 800, which is £22, 400 less than the amount you are intending to pay and the flat/house average was £133, 533. Melbourne Mills, 39, Melbourne Street, Morley, Leeds, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS27 8BJ a new build leasehold flat recently sold for £147, 950 .

The most reliable way for you to get an accurate house valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report as a core component.

A professional surveyor will always attend home in addition to allowing for all other area variables that have a bearing on values.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations be the cause of many issues? I am buying a property in Morley. Can my Morley Property Survey consider this? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

Clay soil-related issues can work slowly over many years, or can arise without warning after a bout of extreme weather or flooding. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. There are two terms used to describe clay soils likely to be problematic, 'expansive' and 'reactive'. If a home owner is aware that the surrounding soil has a high clay content, they should monitor for possible signs. Signs like sticking window frames can be an early warning, suggesting severe underlying structural deficiencies. When performing your Home Buyers Survey in Morley, your surveyor will consider the impact the soil composition has had, and may have, on the house. If you are particularly concerned about a crack or other sign of movement, the surveyor can also report on whether it is recent, or an indication of much earlier subsidence.
