Home Buyers Survey in Guiseley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Guiseley and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Guiseley property is an apartment, or was built before 1900, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not brick and tile), RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS advise you go for a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it does give you exhaustive analysis of the Guiseley property's state of repair in addition to an opinion on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What defects will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco coated Victorian house in Guiseley.

Stucco (aka pargetting) is just a form of render. Normally stucco is applied to brick (sometimes also ceilings) that sets to a flat surface, often then trowled to give the appearance of stone blocks. Stucco render is very attractive and is/was was often applied to Regency homes. Expert tradesmen who work with it say it is very similar to plaster. It used to contain lime in it in addition to a grid underneath to help prevent cracks. it can be problematic and Guiseley surveyors sometimes focus on defects for example, when it is exposed to driving rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost.

Another example of problems associated with stucco could result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Resolving problems may be costly as the skills are becoming rarer.

Shocking Electrics

When we went to see a property we are meaning to move into it appeared that there is old wiring - does a Guiseley survey advise the wiring and fusebox?

During a Guiseley Homebuyer Report the home surveyor should mention the overall electrical system if it is clear that they are in a hazardous condition. This will include a general look-over of the unconcealed sections of the wiring or fusebox and other potential areas for concern such as verifying the type of electrical fittings in shower rooms. Inspecting any documents from the most recent PIR carried out by an electrician should usually be part of the survey in Guiseley. Reporting on any evidence of the most recent PIR handled by a suitably qualified electrician will usually form part of the Homebuyer report in Guiseley .

House Prices

I would like to buy a house in Guiseley (LS20). The vendor is asking £302, 864. What factors will surveyor take into account during a RICS valuation ?

There are many factors that might affect house prices from proximity to transport to the amount of accommodation it offers. You can try to set against the prices of house achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price registered at the Land Registry between Jul and Oct 2012 was £291, 864, which is £11, 000 less than the price you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £259, 552. 21, Norwood Avenue, Menston, Ilkley, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS29 6FW a detached house sold for £359, 995 .

An impartial way for you to get an accurate home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

Conservation area

Will there be any considerations we need to be wary of when purchasing a flat in Guiseley in the vicinity of conservation area, particularly with regards to house prices?

There are over 9, 000 official conservation areas in England and Wales which are governed by local councils. Guiseley surveyors are required by RICS to have relevant knowledge of local area issues and the connection may have with the building. Property Prices tends to be more than prices outside the area as a result of the areas being preserved.

Surveyors are trained to advise you if the house is/might be in a conservation area and the Section I Issues for your legal advisers of a Homebuyer Report will suggest suitable questions are conducted by the conveyancing solicitor. Out of keeping adjustments that do not have Local Authority approval may also be advised but these are really more a concern for your conveyancer. Hewitts Ingham are based in, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS19 6HN will be able to advise. Tel: 0113 250 5099

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Does a Building survey in Guiseley include a valuation and reinstatement cost estimate (including costs for professional fees) and what will it include?

Guiseley Homebuyer Reports a valuation and a reinstatement (rebuilding) cost estimate as part of the survey. When calculating the value of the property the valuer will factor in awareness of the Guiseley property market as well as other factors relating to the property e.g. style of architecture Surveyors also evaluate materials used and make certain other assumptions, for example it is connected to mains services. Surveyors don't factor in certain things like furnishings, for example curtains. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any expensive legal issues like building regulations having been complied. Advice should be sought from your solicitor.

Additional local Guiseley area conjectures, like service connections, are made in addition to local environmental concerns like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building survey won't include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
