Home Buyers Survey in Sowerby Bridge

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Sowerby Bridge and which one would be cheaper?

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

If the Sowerby Bridge property is a flat or maisonette, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make any major works, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, but it does give a thorough analysis of the Sowerby Bridge property's condition as well as more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

In a Sowerby Bridge HomeBuyer Report, what might a Condition rating 3 mean for roof coverings?

Condition rating three is used to highlight very serious issues. Defects marked in red may also need further inspection by an expert. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific residence being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or 'not inspected'. If a residence does not have a porch or conservatory, for example, these aspects of the report will be omitted.

As part of Section E2, these elements are comprehensively checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. A cracking asphalt roof is an example of this.

House Prices

I intend to purchase a flat in Sowerby Bridge (HX2) for around £107, 489. What considerations will a Sowerby Bridge qualified RICS surveyor allow for on a property valuation report ?

There is a vast array of things that can add to or subtract from the price of property from living on flood plain to whether the property is overlooked. One method is to put side by side flat prices achieved in Sowerby Bridge at the same time for similar properties. The average flat price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £102, 389, which is £5, 100 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £153, 953. Oats Royd Mill, 43, Dean House Lane, Luddenden, Halifax, Calderdale, West Yorkshire, HX2 6RL recently sold for £230, 000 .

The most accurate way to get a formal house valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default. A qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 30 April 2011).
