About Us

Home Buyers Survey in Otley

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey for a property in Otley and which one is cheaper?

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

If the Otley property is a flat, or was built before 1900, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, RICS recommend you book a Building Survey. The Building Survey is not as cheap however it does give an in-depth analysis of the Otley property's condition along with more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Damage resulting from flooding

Is there a risk of flooding in Otley, and can a Otley surveyor consider any flooding?

Overflowing rivers, rain and insufficient drainage can cause flooding damage. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. It is strongly recommended that prevention methods are considered, before flooding begins. In addition, the house survey may advise on urgent repairs.Less expensive preventative measures include the installation of air brick covers. Oral enquiries can sometimes be made of the residents, but this information may not be accurate.

Building Surveys on maisonettes

Do I need to go for a full structural survey prior to acquiring a neglected, purpose built regency maisonette in Otley?

Structural surveys are now called Building Surveys. If you are buying an altered Otley maisonette such as a period house, this is the best choice of home survey. It portrays in depth and significant insight about the houses condition in conjunction with any defects after a thorough visual inspection of the inside and outside of the main building and permanent outbuildings.
