Home Buyers Survey in Settle

HomeBuyer Report

Should we have a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report for a house in Settle and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Settle property is a flat or maisonette, or is an older property, or has been extended or modified, or is of non standard construction (i.e. not made of bricks), then RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any major works, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is less cheap, however it will give you comprehensive details of the Settle property's condition as well as information on defects , repairs and maintenance options .

Traditionally built property

My partner and I are buying a 15th Century gatehouse in Settle. What consequences will the house's cladding have on maintenance?

Many buyers in Settle have considered buying a home with character, such as a Victorian home. Vernacular, or traditional, architecture, however, can worry purchasers, and Structures built using traditional methods can be challenging to repair. You should bear in mind that specialist knowledge may be needed. Traditional materials may also need to be sourced, particularly in the case of a home in one of Settle's conservation areas. This may mean that it is all the more vital that you get a building survey prior to exchanging.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

If we are purchasing in Settle, what recommendations will you make for homes constructed with brick chimney?

Settle buildings with brick walls can be affected by distinct issues, such as thermal movement. For instance, damp and water damage resulting from gaps in uneven brickwork and should be taken very seriously. Hall A J may be able to give a quote for any maintenance work. Contact them at 01253 344733 or 46 Chislehurst Av, Blackpool, FY4 3AR.

For example, Scottish bond, featuring five courses (rows) of long-oriented bricks then one row of short faced bricks, before repeating the pattern. It may be appropriate to renegotiate the price of a property if a survey reveals even superficial brick wall problems.
