Home Buyers Survey in Hawes

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a house in Hawes and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Hawes property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, it would be better that you commission a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap but it will give an in-depth analysis of the Hawes property's condition and it includes advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Hawes house with Clipsham stone walls. What potential issues must we watch out for, and what will the survey reveal?

Ranging from Brown Woodkirk Sandstone to Peakmoor Sandstone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance, and the defects impacting a type of stone will vary according to its properties. Irregular stone often has a more rustic appearance, but the mortar used may be susceptible to a higher rate of decay. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. A survey will include a range of suggestions or requirements for maintenance, such as fast replacement of any stones which have become loose. If you are planning to renovate, consider that a stone matching service is operated by the British Geological Survey. Locally mined or quarried stone may also be available.

Gas flame

Does the RICS surveyor inspect the condition of the gas mains supply?

The local surveyor will visually inspect the accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as the mains gas installation at the home, in addition to gas connected appliances/installations such as balanced flues (where immediately extended from appliance/external element).. The Hawes RICS surveyor will not remove fittings and surveyors are not qualified to do any tests on the appliances or system. Of course, gas is potentially deadly, should there be any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas engineer.

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will bugs affect the purchase price of a house in Hawes - Do we need a chartered surveyor?

Infestations can range from the mild and harmless, to the seriously harmful. Signs may not be obvious, for example, the smell of ammonia in or behind cupboards may indicate mice, even if no droppings are found. Treatment for pests may include use of insecticides.
