HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a property in Wheatley and which one is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey, although it is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Wheatley property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any major works, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Wheatley property's condition in addition to an opinion on defects and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Wheatley Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Asbestos roof tiles

A builder friend noted there is a risk of asbestos insulating board affecting the house. What are the issues with asbestos, can it be removed, ?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly fibrous substance of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White may be in building materials e.g. sprayed on coatings. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has characteristic resistance to chemical damage qualities and it may be found in sealant.

All forms are deadly and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Finding asbestos does not necessarily pose a risk to health.

Should you find asbestos, you should be careful never to displace asbestos. Professional advice must be taken ASAP. You should not endeavour to remove it yourself. Surveyors cannot verify the presence of asbestos on a survey. Your Wheatley surveyor should mention the risk of asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Damage caused by high rainfall

What impact should wet conditions have on a Wheatley house? Could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However the impact wet weather can have on Wheatley property is not considered by purchasers. If you have only seen the house in the Summer, defects may not have been obvious.

Signs that drainage are a cause for concern include mildew in the attic. Poor drainage can lead to damage to foundations.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to fix, and is also relatively inexpensive.However, the damage caused, where poorly maintained, will be expense to remedy and resulting damp and mould could become a health risk.

Conservation area

Will there be any problems we would need to verify when intending to buy a property in Wheatley near a conservation area ?

There are over 9, 000 of conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by the local council. Surveyors in Wheatley are required by RICS to possess sufficient knowledge of relevant local area issues and any connection they have with the property. Property values is generally significantly higher as a result of conservation areas being unspoilt. However many areas have fallen into shoddy condition for example - the addition of PVC windows and doors

Property surveyors will advise whether the property looks like it may be so designated and Section I of your Wheatley Homebuyer Report will advise additional due diligence and enquiries are carried out by your solicitor. Unapproved developments to the building may also be commented on, however these should be concern for your conveyancer. Valerie Holmes Property Lawyer are based in, Calderdale, West Yorkshire, HX3 8LT might be prepared to advise further. Tel: 01422 200400
