Home Buyers Survey in Horbury

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Horbury and which is cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same survey.

If the Horbury property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should go for the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any substantial modifications, you should you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer comprehensive details of the Horbury property's state of repair in addition to advice on defects , repairs as well as maintenance options .

Roof defects identified during a survey

The agent mentioned that the had been issues with loose tiles, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. What does the Horbury house surveyor look for?

Horbury properties in good condition can still be subject to problems like wet rot. All parts of the roof must be considered during the survey. This can include anything from ceiling joists to fascias. Flat roofs can also be a nuisance, caused by factors like badly installed felting.

High 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. Once the surveyor has delivered their report, consider arranging a quote from a Horbury roofing contractor for the job itself. Call Burrow F C Ltd of Spa Street, Ossett, WF5 0HJ on 01924 274064 for a quote.

Gas flame

Will a local surveyor check the state of repair of the gas flues?

The chartered surveyor will locate and visually examine any easily accessible parts of the gas system. This will mean gas related areas such as whether the mains is connected for example, as well as gas connected fittings for example - prefabricated flues. The Horbury RICS surveyor won't remove external fittings and surveyors are not qualified to conduct any tests of any kind on the system or appliances. Most people are aware that gas is potentially deadly and if there are any worries about gas, contact a gas safe engineer.
