Home Buyers Survey in Thirsk

HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a home in Thirsk and which one would be the cheapest?

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

If the Thirsk property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any substantial modifications, you should you choose a Building Survey. This option is less cheap however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the Thirsk property's condition as well as advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

For further advice you can get a Thirsk House Survey Quote via our website or call 0800 038 6667 to speak to one of our advisers.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are planning to purchase a maisonette in Thirsk, does the home surveyor search for flooding damage?

Last year was the second wettest year on record (source: The Independent), and purchasers and owners are understandably concerned. The Environment Agency maintain a flood warning service, with regular updated risk assessments.

Flooding can increase the likelihood of water entering a property, such as via door frames. The Home Buyers Survey will also include details of any evidence of historical flooding, and may comment generally about the area's propensity to flood. Flooding issues will only be raised in Section J of a Home Buyers Survey if the building surveyor observes or has reason to suspect that the property is at risk.

English Heritage

We are intending to purchase a building close to Byland Moor Round Cairns , will this affect the property's value?

Byland Moor Round Cairns is a scheduled monument considered to be of national importance. Places of local interest often increase the attractiveness of an area. Examples of other monuments of importance are Gallow Hill Round Barrow, Hood Hill Motte And Bailey and Round Barrow At Ridge End.. A RICS surveyor will include many regional criteria during the homebuyer report in Thirsk. See the English Heritage website for more information on Byland Moor Round Cairns.

Stone block wall damage

Can Kentish Rag stone-built structures be hard to maintain. Which major issues should we consider? Does the surveyor give advice on this?

If left in a poor state of repair, stone walls will suffer from structural issues caused by factors including algae. The problems which can plague poorly maintained stone vary considerably.

Stone walls are either regular (cut) or irregular in structure, each of which will provoke particular concerns.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls.

Home Buyers Surveys will usually offer guidance on these matters. An example would be.

Ask your surveyor for clarification if you are in doubt as to likely maintenance, particularly if the house in question is listed or located in a conservation area.
