HomeBuyer Report

Should I have a HomeBuyer Report, Full Structural Survey or Building Survey on a house in East Boldon and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed by RICS as a Building Survey and is effectively the same level of survey.

If the East Boldon property is an apartment, or is a period property, or has been substantially modified, or is built of unusual materials, then RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to do any alterations, it would be better that you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it does give you an in-depth analysis of the East Boldon property's state of repair as well as including advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Asbestos roof tiles

A local builder informed me there is a risk of asbestos insulation being found in the home. What is asbestos and does the surveyor look at this?

Asbestos is a potentially deadly substance. Chrysotile (White), Amosite (Brown) and Crocidolite (Blue) were commonly found in the building materials e.g. pipe lagging. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has a range of useful characteristic heat resistance qualities and it may be found in pipe insulation. Technically all forms (including white) are hazardous and may lead to lung cancer if inhaled over sustained periods. Should you find asbestos, you should be careful not to break the asbestos. Professional advice must be taken without delay.

Surveyors will not tell you whether there is asbestos on a survey. Your surveyor will note suspected asbestos and will inform you of the options.

Damage caused by high rainfall

Do we need to consider drainage? Will the East Boldon HomeBuyer Report give details on this? If there is damage, will they be costly to fix?

I find it odd that the impact wet weather can have on houses in East Boldon is ignored by purchasers. If you have only been to the new home in dry conditions, defects may not have been obvious. Blocked rainwater goods can result in water damage.

That is not to say that drainage problems should cause you to reconsider a purchase. They are usually a simple matter to remedy.

External brick wall issue identified during property survey

The handmade bricks on this East Boldon home might need repairs - what should we do? Does the age of the property matter?

Brick-constructed residential property in East Boldon feature several advantages over timber-built homes, but they can also experience diverse problems, ranging from horizontal cracking to weathering. One defect surveyors commonly report on brick buildings is brick rot, resulting from decades of exposure to condensation or damp at ground level. Brickwork C G may be able to give an estimate for any necessary upkeep. Contact them at Laburnum Ter, Abercarn, Newport, NP11 5JQ or 01495 249892.

For home purchasers in East Boldon seeking a rare example of brick architecture, look for unusual course styles like basket weave bonds, with alternating groups of vertically and horizontally arranged bricks. Contact a specialist for more information if this is of interest.
