HomeBuyer Report

Is it best to book a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Jarrow and which one would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey, although it is basically the same the same comprehensive survey.

If the Jarrow property is an apartment, or is over 100 years old, or has been structurally modified, or is of non standard construction, you should choose a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to make alterations, RICS recommend you select a Building Survey. This option is not as cheap as a HomeBuyer Report however it will give you exhaustive analysis of the Jarrow property's state of repair along with more detailed advice on defects as well as maintenance options .

Conservatory

On a HomeBuyer Report carried out in Jarrow, what might 'E7 - Conservatory and porches' refer to?

The home buyer report is intended to be easy to read and understand, with a minimum of technical jargon. The surveyor uses a scale between 1 and 3 to show how serious the issues which the surveyor has discovered actually are. Quite a common example is poor quality materials used in the construction of a porch. E7 elements are visually inspected. Building regulations and issues relating to correct planning approval are considered (e.g. is it a conservatory, an extension, or a 'sun room'?) will be considered too.

Stone block wall damage

We are buying a Jarrow property with Hopton Wood stone walls. Are there specific matters to consider?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. Defects affecting stone-built homes in Jarrow can vary, erosion being relatively common. Irregular stone walls are not uncommon to homes in Jarrow, but dressed (cut) stone may also be used for decoration. Ashlar courses are often used to finish more irregular stone walls. These are employed as a decorative front, with brick or irregular walls. This can give rise to maintenance issues if either element of the wall has been treated with a non-breathable material. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes replacing missing or badly worn stones.

Purchasers renovating homes in Jarrow should be aware that stone matching services are available, which may be necessary for listed buildings. To source stone quarried in Jarrow, you can contact local suppliers.

Contact a local mine or quarry, e.g. Howden Marine, Willington Quay, Wallsend, North Tyneside, NE28 6UR, quarrying Marine Sand & Gravel, for details.

If you a undertaking repairs, and require matching stone, contact a Jarrow firm. Abbey Stonecraft Ltd, Unit 19 Bede Trading Est, Jarrow, NE32 3EG (Phone: 0191-428 6775), for example, could assist.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

I have heard that subsidence in Jarrow could be a problem. What subsidence issues will the HomeBuyer Report look into?

Movement of the foundations of a structure is called subsidence. Additionally, most homes in Jarrow are built with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

In areas of clay soil, a dry spell will lower the water table. This dries out and shrinks the clay, pulling on the homes foundations and which causes subsidence. A sudden change in the weather can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, potentially as a result of poor construction.

Identifying what has caused the subsidence is a necessary first step.Though tree roots are often the cause, removal of this plant life may make the problem worse, so professional advice should be sought. Existing trees must be well managed, and new trees should be planted at a safe distance from the exterior walls of the property. Maple, lime and horse chestnut trees should planted no closer than 20m to the property itself. Underpinning could be the only option in some cases, unfortunately. Underpinning the foundations will usually stop the foundations from further movement. It is, however, a time-consuming and costly process. 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.
