About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Liversedge

HomeBuyer Report

Should I opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a house in Liversedge and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has a new name called a Building Survey but is effectively the same level of survey.

If the Liversedge property is a flat, or is 100 or more years old, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any works or an extension, it would be better that you opt for a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap however it will give a more detailed analysis of the Liversedge property's general condition along with advice on defects and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be fearful of if buying a flat proximate to a landfill site

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste including hazardous waste material. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (most people do live near one). Concerns include tars and other hazardous materials. Health problems like gut problems have been associated to landfill sites .

Surveyors will consider structural issues resulting from the site. Your solicitor will conduct environmental searches of the British Geological databases and Kirklees Local Authority and address any concerns you may have .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The vendor has said subsidence might be a concern. What subsidence-related defects will my house survey look into?

Subsidence is movement in a home's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be put right. Heave is less common, and is caused by the death or removal of a large shrub or tree and its roots cease absorbing moisture from the ground.

Subsidence is the result of a number of common issues. For example, water leaking from a broken drainage will wash soil away from the foundations. This reduces the volume of the subsoil, allowing the weight of the property to distort the supporting ground. Inside the property, keep an eye out for fresh cracks in brick or plaster.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.Repairing leaking drains, water mains or broken downpipes, which are the cause of the subsidence, should be all that is needed to stabilise the home. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. As an alternative to underpinning, piling, or mini-piling, uses concrete or steel poles that are driven down into more stable soil, to stop further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Damaged Render

What sort of issues will a Surveyor take into account on a stipple rendered (stucco) regency house in Liversedge that I wish to buy.

Stucco is actually just a kind of smooth render. Typically it is layered over brick that sets to a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. The finish is highly aesthetic and is found on Victorian and Georgian houses. It is similar to mortar. It used to contain lime in it in addition to a wire under mesh. to help prevent cracks. Stucco is often prone to defect and Liversedge surveyors can highlight potentially expensive to remedy problems such as when stucco is exposed to on-going weathering which gets perma-saturated and prone to frost damage.

Another example of problems might result from the difficulty in discovering damp underneath. Re-applying Stucco problems can be surprisingly expensive as the skills are getting rarer.
