HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Todmorden and which one would be cheaper?

Timber damage by insect larvae

A local warned us about insects affecting some homes. Do we need a RICS surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Evidence may not be easy to find. For example, cockroaches hide during the day, in light-fittings, beneath cracks in floor tiles or behind appliances. You may not spot them until moving in. Remedies to pest problems can include use of insecticides. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand. Speak to a pest control specialist, such as Kwickill Pest Control Ltd, 3 Bridge Street, Todmorden, Lancashire, OL14 5AQ on 0170 681 4100, to discuss remedies.

Stone block wall damage

Can Beer stone-built homes be a challenge. What should we be particularly aware of, and what will the survey reveal?

Locally quarried stone may be more susceptible to specific issues. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like erosion will vary with the particular type of stone. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Different stone types will also decay a different rates based on environmental conditions. For example, slate is far more water-resistant than many other stones. Advice for better upkeep will vary according to the needs of individual property, such as cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

House Prices

I want to purchase a detached house in OL14. The vendor is asking £136, 880. What will a Todmorden qualified surveyor consider on a home buyers survey ?

There is a vast array of things which could affect house prices from state (of neglect) of exterior to the number of bedrooms in the property. You can try to benchmark prices the prices of house achieved in the area for comparable properties.

The average house price recorded between July and October in 2012 was £135, 980, which is £900 less than the asking price (£132, 133 was the blended house/flat average). Mellings Farm, Sourhall Road, Todmorden, Calderdale, West Yorkshire, OL14 7HZ a detached home sold for £175, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an independent house valued is to commission a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR) by default.

A professional surveyor should make a site visit to the property as well as factoring in all other area issues that have a bearing on the value of property.

Substandard guttering

In the HomeBuyer Report what are common Condition rating 3 defects for 'E3 - Rainwater pipes and gutters' ?

One example issue could be too few roof drains. The rainwater goods are inspected by eye. Buyers should be aware that although drainage is reported on in this section, other aspects of the water system are referred to elsewhere any defects in a combined system. Red, or condition rating three, indicates particularly concerning issues. These can include dangers such as the suspected presence of asbestos, or extensive structural damage. Some areas may be marked as '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.
