About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Harehills

HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Harehills and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Harehills property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any works or an extension, RICS recommend you carry out a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap, however it will offer comprehensive details of the Harehills property's condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

House Prices

I would like to purchase a detached property in LS9. The vendor is asking £125, 103. What will the Harehills local surveyor take into account in the process of a home buyers survey ?

There are a huge number of issues that can affect property values ranging from the length of lease to the property's proximity to a conservation area. As an indicator, one can try to compare with house values achieved in the area for similar houses.

The average house price registered between Jul and Oct 2012 was £120, 503, which is £4, 600 less than the amount you are intending to pay. The house/flat average was £119, 288. 10, Parkside View, Seacroft, Leeds, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS14 6FG a detached property was purchased for £124, 995 .

An impartial way for you to get an independent house valued is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation by default.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes (including additional costs such as site clearance)

A Homebuyer Report on a Harehills building will include a RICS qualified surveyor valuation and will also include a Reinstatement Cost as part of the survey. In order to determine an accurate value estimate your RICS valuer will pair local property market knowledge as well as other factors relating to the property for instance: desirability of the location. Surveyors also reflect on construction type and will draw upon key assumptions e.g. the property is connected to mains services such as water. A Building survey does not 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. It will also be assumed that there is an absence of any problematic legal issues e.g. the tenure being as indicated (e.g leasehold). These will be investigated by your legal representative.

Additional local area assumptions like service connections, are made in addition to local environmental problems like flood plains, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Chartered Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco coated regency house in Harehills that I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco (sometimes called pargetting) is just a form of render. Typically it is layered over brick to form a smooth and attractive finish. The coating is very aesthetic and is found on Victorian buildings. It is very like plaster and mortar to apply. Sometimes it can have lime in it in addition to a plastic under mesh to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often problematic and Harehills Homebuyer Reports sometimes show potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when it is exposed to on-going weathering and rain which gets perma-saturated prone to damage from frost. Other potential problems could result from the difficulty is testing for damp underneath. Re-covering problems with stucco may be expensive as the skills are getting rarer.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is wet weather an issue in Harehills? Could it affect the property value?

Climate change is regularly in the news. However this issue is usually overlooked by purchasers. Signs that downspouts are worth a closer look include streaks of dirt down the outside of guttering. Poor drainage can lead to warped floorboards or beams.

In most cases, drainage problems are usually easy to resolve, if maintenance is taken seriously, unless they are poorly maintained. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.
