Home Buyers Survey in Selby

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Selby and which one is the cheapest?

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

If the Selby property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any an extension, RICS advise you choose a Building Survey instead. This survey is not as cheap however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Selby property's state of repair along with advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will your Chartered Surveyor take into account on a stucco coated regency house in Selby that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is really a type of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick to form a very smooth surface. The effect is very grand in appearance and is often found on Victorian and Regency buildings. It used to have lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. it can be prone to defect and Selby surveyors can reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems which can include trapped moisture resulting in problems with damp needing repair. Other potential problems could be when the application is taken down to ground level and short circuits the Damp Proof Course. Re-covering problems can be difficult as the skills are getting harder to find.

English Heritage

We are intending to buy a home close to Drax Augustinian Priory , will this affect the property's value?

Drax Augustinian Priory is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Monuments of local importance can increase the desirability of an area. Examples of other monuments of interest include Scurff Hall Moated Site, The Abbot'S Staithes and Wressle Castle.. Your RICS surveyor will include many local and regional factors during the homebuyer report in Selby. Visit the English Heritage website for further details on Drax Augustinian Priory.

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying an older coast house in Selby. What consequences will the house's cladding have on maintenance?

Some buyers would like to own a home with character, such as a period conversion. Older construction methods and materials, however, can concern buyers. Buildings built with traditional or "vernacular" techniques can be unexpectedly hard to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist expertise may be needed. Especially for listed property, Construction materials, such as matching tiles, may be required. If you are uncertain, speak to your property surveyor for more information.
