HomeBuyer Report

Should we opt for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a property in Beadnell and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey is now called a Building Survey and is basically the same the same.

If the Beadnell property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been structurally altered, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to make significant alterations, you should you select a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap, but it does provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Beadnell property's state of repair as well as including more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

Will pests affect the purchase price of a property in Beadnell. Do we need a RICS surveyor?

Homes are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions.

Unfortunately, the threat posed by these to property is very real, and can impact a home's worth. Signs may not be obvious, damage to stored clothes or carpets is a sign of a moth infestation, but may not be spotted for months. Remedies to pest problems can include destruction of tainted materials. Your surveyor may report on signs of infestation, especially if you have raised your concerns beforehand.

Damage resulting from flooding

We are buying a house in Beadnell, does the house surveyor check possible flood damage?

The impact of flooding, both in the region of Beadnell and nationwide, is a serious concern for owners. If you are planning to buy in a flood-affected area, a house survey will inform your decision. The Environment Agency maintain a flood alert service, with regular updated risk assessments. Flood water can enter a home through several routes, including seepage through walls. Section J of the survey report contains details, where applicable, of flooding risks found within the boundaries of the home or on adjacent sites. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Mould caused problems in the past - What should we do about roof repairs?

Beadnell homes with no other major issues can often hide roofing problems, such as. From valley gutters to gables, all aspects of the roof will be taken into account. The are also numerous flat-roofed properties in Beadnell, including many apartment blocks. In these cases, the chartered surveyors will look for a range of signs, including literally being flat. An incline of at least '1 to 80' is recommended.

Given the high cost of major roof repairs like replacing rotten rafters or soffits, some homeowners may defer maintenance indefinitely. This makes both the cause and the consequences harder and even more expensive to treat when repairs do take place. A local contractor with a good reference should be able to assist with a quote.
