HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Thirsk and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is effectively the same survey.

If the Thirsk property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Thirsk property's condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

House Prices

There is a detached house in YO7 on for £251, 960. What things does the local surveyor take into account when calculating house prices in Thirsk ?

There are a great number of factors that might affect the price of property for example the total square meterage of the home or the number of bedrooms in the property. One method is to set against house values registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

This means house prices registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £224, 960, which is £27, 000 less than the price being asked. The house/flat average was £218, 976. Willow Tree Cottage, Boltby, Thirsk, Hambleton, North Yorkshire, YO7 2DY a detached house sold for £250, 000 .

The most reliable way for you to get a professional home valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) as part of the service. Your

RICS surveyor will be accredited under the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

A professional qualified surveyor will always attend the home as well as considering the myriad of area items that might affect property prices.

Traditionally built property

What should we investigate when purchasing an older property in Thirsk? Will the age of the structure be a problem?

Some buyers in Thirsk have considered buying a home with character. A building's age, however, can often be problematic. Property employing traditional methods can be a chore to maintain. You should consider that specialist knowledge may be needed. Materials suitable for the work may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of Thirsk listed buildings. This may end up costing more than initially budgeted. Built in the 17th century, Cowesby in Thirsk is a fine example of a Post Medieval-period property.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the late 30s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to be a source of difficulty? Does the Home Buyers Survey cover this?

Factors from damp to wood boring insects can cause high maintenance costs for a property-owner. Clay-rich soil, for example, is a potential source of a number of issues. Subsidence is one obvious concern, but there are others, including sub-soil shrinkage. The consequences may take years to be noticed, or could be felt suddenly. Visible results may be anything from warping of floorboards to sticking window frames. A Thirsk surveyor will take into account and clay soil related concerns, and advise accordingly. Patches of wet and dry soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
