HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey for a home in Kirkbymoorside and which one is the cheapest?

The Full Structural Survey has changed its name to a Building Survey but is effectively the same.

If the Kirkbymoorside property is a flat, or is a period property, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials, RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you select a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap however it will provide you with exhaustive analysis of the Kirkbymoorside property's general condition as well as more detailed advice on defects , general repairs and maintenance options .

Damaged Render

What will the Property Surveyor look for on a stucco rendered house in Kirkbymoorside that we intend to purchase.

Stucco is just a kind of render. Commonly stucco render is layered over brick hardens to form a smooth surface that is sometimes scored to resemble stone. It is very appealing and is common on some Victorian homes. it can be problematic and Surveyors in Kirkbymoorside commonly reveal potentially expensive to remedy problems for example, when stucco is exposed to constant driving rain which gets perma-saturated and thus prone to frost damage. Other issues may result from the carrying of heavy weight or loads above such as cracking under stone slab roofs. Resolving problems with stucco can be dear as craftsmen are getting rarer.

Asbestos roof tiles

The neighbour stated there may be a risk of brown asbestos boiler cupboard being found in property. Is this a major concern and what does the surveyor do?

Asbestos is a carcinogenic material of several naturally occurring materials. The 3 main types are Blue, Brown and White and they were commonly used in building materials e.g. acoustic tiles. Its use is widespread, for example - as it has good sound absorption qualities and it may be found in acoustic ceilings for example.

All forms are carcinogenic and can lead to lung cancer following prolonged exposure.

If discovered, one must be careful never to remove it and professional advice should be sought immediately. Kirkbymoorside Surveyors cannot tell you whether there is asbestos during a Kirkbymoorside building survey. They will mention possible asbestos and will recommend professional testing.

Roof defects identified during a survey

Another resident of the building said that the had been a problem with amateur repairs, and we expect to budget something for roof maintenance. Will access to the loft be a problem?

Homes in Kirkbymoorside that are otherwise ideal may be exposed to issues with the roof like. From slates to valley gutters, the whole roof will be taken into account. Flat roofs are also known for the trouble they can cause, often the result of amateur repairs.

In the past, roof maintenance would be carried out with just ladders and 'crawler boards'. This practice is terribly unsafe, and contractors today will insist that scaffolding be used. It may be advisable to source an estimate for any work prior to exchange. However, buyers should endeavour to compare a number of quotes to find the best deal.
