HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to choose a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Shipley and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Shipley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out significant alterations, you should you choose a Building Survey instead. This more detailed survey is less cheap but it does give an in-depth analysis of the Shipley property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

A neighbour warned us that access to the roof could be an issue. What will our RICS surveyor look for?

Shipley property that are otherwise ideal can be hiding serious roof maintenance problems, such as ponding. From ceiling joists to gables, every element of the roof should be investigated. Your surveyors in Shipley may then recommend that some faults need urgent attention.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like replacing rotten rafters or soffits, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A contractor with professional accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Can clay soil foundations create problems? I am buying a home in Shipley. Will a Home Buyers Survey look into this?

The content of soil around the foundations of a Shipley property will have an impact. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a property's foundations, forcing them inward. Where the foundation walls have insufficient support, they will bow and crack. This can result in costly and even dangerous structural damage. During the HomeBuyer Report or Building Survey, the effect that the soil make up could have on the property will be considered. If soil water levels must be kept stable, uniform spread of the moisture is also important. Your surveyor may be able to offer practical suggestions as to how this can be achieved.
