Home Buyers Survey in Mirfield

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to select a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Mirfield and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the Mirfield property is an apartment, or is an older property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. steel and glass), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you choose a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the Mirfield property's state of repair and it includes an opinion on defects as well as maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

The estate agent mentioned subsidence might be a problem affecting the home. How could this affect the property, and what subsidence issues does the Mirfield Surveyor report on?

Movement of a house on a structural level is called subsidence. Generally, a builder will return to a new house within a few months in order to repair settlement damage.

Cracks to a sitting room are a plain indication of subsidence. Fortunately, these are in many cases benign. In extreme conditions, movement can worsen, leading to subsidence.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step. Removing or even pruning the tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Buyers should also be aware that a property may need to be monitored for several months before clear evidence of movement is found.

Shocking Electrics

When I visited the building I am planning to buy, the agent said that there is deterioration in the wiring and RCD unit; does Mirfield survey report on the wiring and electrical system?

When preparing a Mirfield Home Buyers Survey a surveyor will make a note on the electrical system if it is apparent that they are in a poor state. This should include a general inspection of open or exposed areas of the wiring or fusebox in addition to areas e.g. ascertaining the condition of any fitted appliances, e.g. storage radiators or making sure that supplementary bonding is in the usual place. Looking at any documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical wiring handled by a suitably qualified electrician should usually form part of the survey in Mirfield.

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

We are buying a property built in the late 50s on very clay-rich soil. Is this going to cause problems? What should we expect a Mirfield Property Survey to include? Does the chartered surveyor give maintenance advice?

A common source of queries that surveyors face from home buyers is subsidence, particularly in areas where the soil is rich in clay. Drought, for instance, can have a pronounced contracting effect on clay soil, squeezing the foundations and potentially leading to very noticeable effects within the property. .

If present, expansive clay soil can put lateral pressure on a Mirfield property's foundations, leading to bowing, cracks and severe structural damage.

Taking precautions, such as after flooding or heavy rain, checking for standing water around the building, can make long term maintenance easier, and keep repair costs manageable.

English Heritage

We are planning to purchase a property near Camp At Kirklees Park , will this affect the property's value?

Camp At Kirklees Park is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest can certainly add to the attractiveness of an area. The surveyor will include many local criteria when carrying out the homebuyer report in Mirfield. See the English Heritage website for more information on Camp At Kirklees Park.
