About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Cleckheaton

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a house in Cleckheaton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is essentially the same survey.

If the Cleckheaton property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), you should go for a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any alterations on the Cleckheaton property, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is less cheap but it does give you a thorough analysis of the Cleckheaton property's state of repair along with an opinion on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In the HomeBuyer Report what can 'E2 - Roof coverings' cover?

Section E2 defects are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. If access cannot be arranged, e.g. the property is a flat, the surveyor will be unable to include this in the report. Damage, punctures or tears to an EPDM Roof is one defect applicable to this section. RICS created the HomeBuyer Report to give house buyers a clear and easy to read report on the condition of the home they plan to buy, with a minimum of technical jargon. Three colour coded ratings give an understanding of the severity of defects uncovered during the survey. In some cases, an element covered under Section E may be marked as NI, or 'Not inspected'. Where the surveyor is unable to gain access to some areas, e.g. the roof of a block of flats, these aspects of the report will not be completed.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying a property in Cleckheaton but are worried about pests. What advice should we get?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Cleckheaton building may not be raised during the conveyancing.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. It may not be obvious that a building is suffering a severe pest problem, as evidence can be overlooked. For example, dust mites make they habitation in furnishings and bedding, and are a common source of allergies.

Treatment for pests may include removal or excision of affected timber. Your property surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Asbestos roof tiles

The vendor has mentioned there is a danger of asbestos lagging situated in the maisonette. Which types of asbestos are a concern, is there a danger and will the home survey in Cleckheaton report on it?

Asbestos is a harmful fibrous material. There are over 60 types, 6 of which were used in the UK and are often found in the building materials e.g. asbestos packing in stud walls.

Asbestos was commonly used as it has excellent fire retarding properties, it may be found in central heating flues.

All forms are dangerous and might lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods.

If discovered, one must be careful on no account to break it and professional advice must be taken urgently. On no account try to remove it yourself.

Surveyors do not verify the presence of asbestos on a Cleckheaton home survey. Your Cleckheaton surveyor should mention possible asbestos and will recommend relevant tests.
