HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a property in Birtley and which is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey and is essentially the same level of survey.

If the Birtley property is an apartment, or is 100 or more years old, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out an extension, RICS recommend you opt for a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report but it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Birtley property's state of repair as well as advice on structural defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Timber damage by insect larvae

I am worried about insects in the property we plan to buy. Will the Home Buyers Survey investigate this?

Be aware that your solicitor's forms may not ask about this issue. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can put your health in danger and affect its value. 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, cluster, or swarming flies, are often found in

lofts and can be a serious, seasonal annoyance if not treated. Remedies to an infestation can include insecticides.

Damaged Render

What kind of problems will the Birtley Surveyor be focused on, on a stucco rendered Victorian house in Birtley which I am thinking of purchasing.

Stucco is actually a form of render. Commonly stucco is layered over brick to form an even finish. The coating is very appealing and is was often applied to Victorian and Georgian houses. Stucco is often prone to defect and Birtley Building Surveys commonly reveal any number of problems for example, lateral hairline cracking that follows the mortar joints underneath. Other potential problems might be when water below flashings that causes large areas of detachment. Re-covering problems may be dear as the skills are becoming rarer.

Landfill site near home

What should we be wary of when buying a home in the region a rubbish dump

Sites used for landfill are used for a variety of waste for example: hazardous rubbish. Understandably, no one ideally wants to live near one (4/5 people live near one). Worries might include complex organic chemicals. Health problems for example spina bifida have been associated with landfill sites .

Surveyors in Birtley will flag up structural defects connected with the landfill. Your lawyer will commission environmental searches of the British Geological data sets as well as Gateshead Local Authority and advise you .
