HomeBuyer Report

Should we select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in New Farnley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, however it is essentially the same comprehensive survey.

If the New Farnley property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, however it will give exhaustive analysis of the New Farnley property's state of repair and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Substandard guttering

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in New Farnley, can you give some examples of Condition rating 2 defects impacting rainwater pipes and gutters?

RICS HomeBuyer Reports are transparent, detailed surveys of residential property, unlike less prescriptive surveys. These may offer more complex detail, but they are also less useful for home buyers deciding whether or not to purchase a New Farnley property. Green, orange and red ratings are an indication of the impact on the property individual defects may have. A condition rating of two means that the element covered will need work at some point. In contrast to more serious, 'red' rated, defects, these issues do not require immediate attention. Not inspected' is used to indicate those subsections of Section E which do not apply to the home. The HomeBuyer Report has a standard format, which the surveyor will complete according to the nuances of the particular home, omitting sections as necessary.

One example issue could be downspouts discharging onto the ground. External areas covered by E3 are inspected visually. E3 does not cover internal parts of the water system, such as possible defects such as blockages in sewer pipes.

Conservation area

Are there any considerations we need to consider if intending to buy an extended house in New Farnley in the vicinity of a conservation area?

There are over 9, 000 of designated conservation areas throughout the country, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in New Farnley need to have local knowledge of relevant local factors and the connection they have with the building. Prices is usually significantly higher as a result of them being unspoilt. However many conservation areas have been neglected and are in shoddy condition e.g. the removal front garden walls

Property surveyors will inform you whether the property might be classified as such and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a New Farnley Homebuyer Report will recommend further investigations are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Unapproved extensions to the building will also be advised but these are really more a investigated by the lawyer. Stapleton Gardner & Co are based in Stoneleigh House, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS27 8HN will be happy to advise. Tel: 0113 253 8111
