From the terraced houses and cottages of Huddersfield and Wakefield to the modern flats and Victorian villas of Leeds, West Yorkshire has a vibrant and diverse housing sector with so much variety, however, comes a challenge. Often, these period homes have been developed, extended, and reconfigured to fit with how we prefer to live today, making it essential that you are fully clear on the property's true condition before you sign any contracts. New builds bring their own reasons to be cautious, with many buyers left disappointed that their home isn't as perfect as they expected it to be on completion.

A level 2 survey carried out by our certified RICS Chartered surveyors, the HomeLevel report is suitable for houses built after 1970 and flats built after 1950, which are in a reasonable condition and worth less than £1,000,000. Designed to be comprehensive yet easy to understand, we will determine whether the asking price is fair and detail any issues using a traffic light system so you can be clear on the most serious defects or issues. In addition, we'll also advise on any asbestos concerns and on broadband speeds, which can be an issue in rural areas of the county.
With a significant stock of older and renovated homes, this is a popular option across West Yorkshire as it offers a detailed insight into the property's structural condition. As well as highlighting issues such as damp, areas of movement, timber defects and more, we'll also include photos of defects, detailed identifications and pragmatic repair advice, potentially saving you a significant amount of money.
Whether you want to claim on your home insurance to repair your roof, your flat roof needs replacing, or you just wish to know its true condition, an impartial roof survey carried out by our specialist team will give you the information you need to proceed with confidence.
For many people, the idea of moving into a pristine home is a key reason for choosing a new build. Unfortunately, the reality often doesn't live up to expectations.
