Home Buyers Survey in Headingley

HomeBuyer Report

Should I get a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a home in Headingley and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is effectively the same survey.

If the Headingley property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, RICS recommend you choose a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap but it will offer an in-depth analysis of the Headingley property's state of repair in addition to information on defects and maintenance options .

Overgrown flat roof with weeds

On a Headingley HomeBuyer Report can you give examples of Condition rating 2 defects affecting 'E2 - Roof coverings' ?

Roof coverings, including flat and sloped roofs are checked, if these parts of the property are easy to view or easy to access. Old, worn out roof elements, for example, would be reported here.

Issues requiring some attention are labelled condition rating 2. The condition of this particular aspect of the property is unlikely to require urgent work, however. Parts of the report which do not apply to the specific property being surveyed will be indicated with a 'NI', or '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.

House Prices

Is £170, 300 in the right ball park price to pay for a detached property in LS16 in Headingley for and what will a surveyor evaluate when conducting a survey ?

There is a near endless list of things which could have a bearing on property values for example local employment opportunities or defects in the lease. You can try to analyse house prices achieved in the area for comparable properties.

This means house prices completed in the 3rd quarter of 2012 was £180, 300, which is £10, 000 more than the price you are intending to pay (£172, 325 was the blended house/flat average). 4, Edgerton Road, Leeds, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS16 5JD a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £483, 500 .

An impartial way for home buyers to get a professional property valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a formal valuation as part of the service. Your qualified RICS surveyor will be officially part of the Valuer Registration Scheme (mandatory since 2011).

A RICS surveyor will always attend the site in addition to allowing for the variety of issues that have a bearing on values.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Is rainfall an issue in Headingley?

Despite England's reputation for wet weather this issue is not considered by home buyers. Signs that rainwater goods are damaged include corroded downspouts.

Whether buying in Headingley or elsewhere, difficult rainwater goods does not necessarily mean that you need to pull out. Such matters are often simple to resolve, unless they are not cleared out regularly. The damage will steadily get harder to remedy, so do not be tempted to ignore the signs.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Damp in the attic has created issues for us in the old property, and we are sensitive to the cost of roof repairs. What will our surveyor in Headingley check when the building is surveyed?

Questions like this are often asked of chartered surveyors by house purchasers who are aware that property may be exposed to ponding, among a range of other roofing issues. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from parapet walls to dormers. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of badly installed felting.

Costly quotes for roofing jobs (such as insulating the attic) may have scared off some homeowners from carrying out necessary work. In extreme cases, this may be the reason for the sale, so buyers must be vigilant and employ the services of a qualified surveyor before the exchange of contracts. A Headingley contractor with accreditation should be able to assist with a quote.
