Home Buyers Survey in Yorkshire Dales

HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a house in Yorkshire Dales and which would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey, however it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Yorkshire Dales property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. timber frame), RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to do any alterations, RICS advise you commission a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, but it does give a more detailed analysis of the Yorkshire Dales property's general condition in addition to more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Landfill site near home

What should we be aware of when buying a house in the region a refuse tip

Landfill Sites are used for a variety of waste including domestic rubbish disposal. Nobody ideally wants to live near one (most people do live under 2km away from one). Risks include heavy metals. Health issues such as gut problems have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors will flag up structural problems resulting from the landfill. Your legal representative will carry out environmental searches of the Environmental Agency data sets in addition to Richmondshire Local Authority and inform you of any issues and let you know if the searches fail .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will an infestation affect the purchase price of a home in Yorkshire Dales. Will the Full Structural Survey investigate this?

Questions regarding the infestation of a Yorkshire Dales home may not be raised during the conveyancing. Pests quite literally come in all shapes and sizes, and can be more difficult to treat than many buyers realise. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, mice are able to squeeze through even small gaps and holes, and quickly spread disease through their droppings. Remedies can be disruptive to residents, and may require you to move out during the work in extreme cases.RICS guidelines on the issue of vermin are something of a 'grey-area', so specific fears should be mentioned to your surveyor.
