HomeBuyer Report

Should I select a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Hartlepool and which one would be the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has been renamed a Building Survey and is basically the same the same level of survey.

If the Hartlepool property is a flat, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is built of unusual materials, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you are planning to carry out any alterations, RICS recommend you go for a Building Survey. This option is less cheap, however it does offer a more detailed analysis of the Hartlepool property's general condition and it includes information on defects as well as maintenance options .

House Prices

I am planning to buy a detached property in Hartlepool (TS26), being marketed for £98, 590. What things will a Hartlepool RICS chartered surveyor consider in the process of a Home Survey ?

There are a great number of factors that can impact on property values ranging from national factors such as interest rates to whether the property is listed. It often helps to set against house prices registered at the Land Registry for comparable properties.

This means house prices recorded between Jul and Oct 2012 was £124, 390, which is £25, 800 more than the price being asked (£120, 631 was the blended house/flat average). 1, Holly Mount, Hartlepool, Hartlepool, Hartlepool, TS26 0LU a detached property was sold in the last 3 months for £285, 000 .

The most reliable way to get an independent property valuation is to commission a Homebuyer Report (or Property Valuation Report) which includes a Property Valuation Report (PVR)

as standard. Your local surveyor will be part of the Valuer Registration Scheme, which reinforces professional standards.

Stone block wall damage

Can houses partially constructed with stone create upkeep problems for the owner? Which matters should we consider, and what does the survey cover?

Repair fees for stone-built Hartlepool property can be higher than for more standard. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Stone quarried in the area is common to local Hartlepool property, but some do also feature cut stone brought from outside the county. Stone will also decay as a result of environmental conditions, for example, limestones such as Bath stone or Kentish Rag will deteriorate when exposed to the elements. Property surveys should give some repair guidance, like use of traditional methods to maintain older walls.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, consider a stonemason or specialist in Hartlepool, such as C E D Ltd, Stormwatch, 11 Regent St, Hartlepool, TS24 0QN (Phone: 01429 429251).

Subsidence resulting from soft clay soil

Do clay soil foundations be a source of difficulty for Hartlepool property? Can a Hartlepool House Survey investigate this, and will the Surveyor advise on upkeep?

The adverse impact clay soil can have on a house can be significant. Given the moisture content does have such a great affect of clay-rich soil, owners should be aware that defects can arise if environmental conditions change, such as small cracks in the bathroom ceiling. There is a real benefit in booking a Hartlepool surveyor to carry out your Building Survey, familiar with local soil composition, and who has witnessed the effects first-hand. Patches of wet soil can just as easily warp foundations, so care must be taken to ensure the overall moisture level of the clay soil around the foundations stays consistent.
