HomeBuyer Report

Should we book a HomeBuyer Report, Building Survey or Full Structural Survey on a property in North Cave and which would be the cheapest?

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

If the North Cave property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended or modified, or is built of unusual materials (e.g. thatch roof), RICS advise a cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to do any alterations, it would be better that you book a Building Survey. This survey is not as cheap, but it does offer exhaustive analysis of the North Cave property's state of repair in addition to more detailed advice on defects and maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

Can Doulting stone-built property in North Cave be problematic. Are there any matters that need to be investigated, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Britain's range of geology has encouraged the use of many varieties of stone, from Hall Dale Sandstone to Portland Roach Limestone. Buyers should also be aware that the potential severity of issues like weathered stone will vary with the particular type of stone. Regular stone describes cut stone, generally forming brick-like courses. These may require less maintenance than more irregularly built walls, but this is heavily dependent on the type of stone used. Both regular or irregular stone can be mortared

with lime-based mortar, which may also require attention. Upkeep advice often given in a survey includes clearance of nearby trees and plants. Pulling these up can cause more damage, so your surveyor may recommend a specialist perform the work.

Damage resulting from flooding

Would our home surveyor investigate any flood damage, or if other properties have been affected?

Recent conflict between insurers has the government has caused a great deal of uncertainty, and buyers cannot know that insurance against flooding will continue to be available. It is strongly recommended that the property is protected, before water damage ruins both the walls and floors, and contents. The home survey may also, where appropriate, offer suggestions for better flood defences.Less expensive preventative measures include air brick covers. Also included on Environment Agency's flood alert are details of local rivers and other bodies of water prone to flooding.

Timber damage by insect larvae

We are buying in North Cave, and think we saw signs of vermin in the kitchen - Is a Home Buyers Survey advisable?

North Cave property are generally free of pests, but it is inadvisable to risk buying without more information if you have suspicions. Unfortunately, the impact to a house and its inhabitants can affect the health of residents and affect its value. It is vital that buyers consider this oft-overlooked aspect when making an offer.

Signs may not be evident for weeks or months. As an example, often introduced to a home via luggage after a trip abroad, bed bugs can be extremely hard to remove. Treatment for bug or other pest issues may include destruction of tainted materials.
