HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to get a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Bingley and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is essentially the same survey.

If the Bingley property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out any alterations on the property, you should you go for a Building Survey instead. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give you a thorough analysis of the Bingley property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in Bingley, and think we saw signs of vermin in the hallway. Is a Building Survey advisable?

Bingley houses are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can carry serious health risks and affect its value.

It may not be obvious that a home is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to pest problems can include professional cleaning. If you strongly suspect an issue with cluster flies, or any pest, speak to your RICS surveyor

Stone block wall damage

Will a property with stone walls create issues? Are there any major matters that we should be aware of? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

Britain's varied geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Portland Cap Limestone to Portland Roach Limestone. Defects affecting stone-built property in Bingley can vary, erosion being relatively common. Stone quarried in the area is common to local property in Bingley, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. You can ask the surveyor carrying out the survey for specific advice, but common maintenance suggestions include repointing mortar with a suitable material.

To find a specific quarried stone, consider a stonemason or other knowledgeable contractor in the area. For example, Woodcrown Ltd, Moorview House, Warren La, Bingley, BD16 3LA (Phone: 01274 564496).
