HomeBuyer Report

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

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same survey.

If the Selby property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Selby property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

We are purchasing a property in Selby, does the HomeBuyer Report check for water damage, or whether flooding has affected the garden?

Flooding in Selby can cause severe damage to both contents and property. Those planning to buy in affected areas should weigh up their exposure. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before any water damage happens. Flood water can enter a property through several routes, including door frames.

Familiarity with characteristics of the local area likely to affect property enables the house surveyor to surmise flooding may be a risk, even if the property has not itself flooded before. The house surveyor will usually recommend that the purchasers seek legal advice on any related information mentioned in the report.

Damaged Render

What will your Chartered Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated regency house in Selby that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a type of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick to form a very smooth surface. The effect is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian and Regency buildings. It used to have lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Selby surveyors can reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems which can include trapped moisture resulting in problems with damp needing repair. Other potential problems could be when the application is taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course. Re-covering problems can be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

We are buying in Selby and are looking for a 30s property built with handmade bricks. What input does the surveyor give?

Brick-walled Selby houses can indicate a range of defects, such as DPC failure. The RICS surveyor should report on these, with advice on the consequences were they to go untreated. One problem often found is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. For more information, contact a local builder, Hewitt Philip of 176 Sealand Rd, Chester, CH1 4LH on 01244 376952.

Examples of decorative or unusual usage of brick include ornate Della Robbia bond paving. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
