HomeBuyer Report

Should we go for a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in Great Ayton and which is cheaper?

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

If the Great Ayton property is a flat or maisonette, or is 100 or more years old, or has been extended, or is of non standard construction, RICS recommend a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are thinking about whether to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will provide you with a thorough analysis of the Great Ayton property's state of repair and it includes advice on structural defects and maintenance options .

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are buying a 1985-built property in Great Ayton and noticed cracks down the gable wall. What subsidence issues will the house survey review?

Subsidence is defined as movement of the foundations of a structure, but some degree of movement will always occur. New properties, for example, will need to settle under the weight of the property.

This issue can occur in areas with soil with a high gravel or sand concentration, as this soil is more easily washed away by flooding. A sudden, severe shift in weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

The root cause of any subsidence must be found before repairs can commence.This need not be expensive.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning is usually a last resort due to the cost and inconvenience. Structural brickwork may need to be dismantled and rebuilt, or more cosmetic areas can effectively be repaired with resin filling in the cracks. This can also be time-consuming, and inconvenient. A surveyor will be able to recommend who to speak to about the best course of action, to remedy both the causes of the subsidence and the resulting damage to the property itself.

Stone block wall damage

I am buying a stone-walled cottage. What should we be particularly aware of?

Ranging from Monks Park Limestone to Purbeck Royal Bed Limestone, the stone used in a home's structure will impact maintenance. Defects such as displacement affect many stone-walled Great Ayton property. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Great Ayton property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county.

Regular courses of ashlar (cut stone) are often used as a finish to irregular stone walls, with a brick or rubble wall beneath. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify repointing mortar with a suitable material. Purchasers renovating Great Ayton property should be aware that services to match stone types are available. Contact the British Geological Survey for more detail. To source stone quarried in Great Ayton, you can contact local suppliers.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Eskdale Stone Ltd, Aislaby Quarry, Moor Road, Aislaby, Whitby, North Yorkshire, YO21 1SZ for details. Call 01947 810011 for more information.

House Prices

I want to buy a detached house in Great Ayton (TS9), being marketed for £243, 431. What will the surveyor evaluate on a home buyers survey ?

Any number of issues which could have a bearing on house prices from location of nearby transport links to overall area pricing. As an indicator, one can try to consider house values recorded in Great Ayton for comparable properties.

The means house prices paid between Jul and Oct 2012 was £224, 531, which is £18, 900 less than the amount you are paying and the flat/house average was £218, 088. Oak Manor, Yarm Lane, Great Ayton, Middlesbrough, Hambleton, North Yorkshire, TS9 6QD a detached house sold for £875, 000 .

The most reliable way for home buyers to get a formal home valuation is to get a Homebuyer Report which includes a Property Valuation Report by default. Your RICS surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme ( to not be is a breach of RICS rules).

The qualified RICS surveyor will always visit the home as well as considering the countless factors that have a bearing on values.
