HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in West Yorkshire and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the West Yorkshire property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations on the West Yorkshire property, you should you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you an in-depth analysis of the West Yorkshire property's condition in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Conservation area

Will there be any issues we need to verify if intending to buy a property in West Yorkshire in the vicinity of Akroydon conservation area ?

Akroydon is in a conservation area and has been classified as 'poor' by English Heritage, with medium vulnerability and deteriorating. For more information visit their website. There are around ten thousand of conservation areas in England and Wales, responsibility for which lies with the local council.

Home Buyers Surveys in West Yorkshire must possess sufficient knowledge of local factors and any relation may have on the building. Prices tends to be higher than non conservation area equivalents due to them resisting change.

Surveyors can be expected to note whether the location might be is so classified and Section I of your West Yorkshire Homebuyer Report will advise the proper questions are carried out by your

solicitor. Unconsented adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may be advised but these are really more a investigated by your lawyer.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Should I get a separate valuation and cost of rebuild estimate (including the cost of professional fees) and how is it calculated?

The Homebuyer Report includes a surveyor valuation in addition to a cost of reinstatement included in the cost of the survey. When calculating the market value the surveyor will refer to local West Yorkshire market factors and other factors relating to the property for instance: style of architecture The surveyor will also consider construction methods and will draw upon other assumptions, for example there being no serious defects.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. However we can add a valuation for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.

Additional local area conjectures, like water and drainage connectivity, are made in addition to local environmental issues like brine mining activity, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Traditionally built property

What do I need to investigate when purchasing a house built in around 1730? Will the residence's age be a concern?

For houses in West Yorkshire built before the 20th Century, age can concern buyers. West Yorkshire homes built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be expensive to repair. It is often the case that specialist expertise is necessary, and it could also be necessary to find Construction materials, such as period brick or roof tiles, , which could mean it is a good idea to discuss current upkeep needs with the seller.Mention this to the surveyor for more detail. Built in around 1588, Shandy Hall in Coxwold is an example of a traditional Post Medieval-period hall.
