HomeBuyer Report

Should I go for a Full Structural Survey, Building Survey or HomeBuyer Report on a home in Northallerton and which would be cheaper?

The Full Structural Survey has been updated to a Building Survey but is essentially the same.

If the Northallerton property is a flat or maisonette, or was built before 1900, or has been extended, or is built of unusual materials, RICS recommend the cheaper HomeBuyer Report.

If you intend to carry out substantial modifications, RICS advise you carry out a Building Survey. This more detailed survey is less cheap, however it will give you a more detailed analysis of the Northallerton property's general condition along with advice on structural defects as well as maintenance options .

Stone block wall damage

I am intending to put an offer in on a property in Northallerton partially constructed Doulting stone. What issues should we be aware of, and will the surveyor offer any advice?

Stone walls often appear more robust than they are. The properties of a stone can affect wear as much as upkeep or construction. Irregular stone walls are found throughout the county, and can require more care and attention that regular, brick-like stone walls due greater impact the weather can have on exposed mortar. These walls will need frequent upkeep.

Ask you surveyor for details, but the report may specify cleaning loose fragments and dirt before repointing or applying any treatment or fixative, to slow decay.

Wall cracks caused by subsidence

We are purchasing a apartment in Northallerton and found cracks down the gable wall. What can be done to resolve subsidence if it is identified?

Subsidence is movement in a house's foundations. In most cases, subsidence can be repaired without a great deal of stress. Many homes are erected with a variety of materials, each of which will contract at a varying rates.

There are several frequently-occurring causes of subsidence. For example, water leaking from a broken drainage will clear away soil which supports the structure. This can effectively reduce the volume of the soil surrounding the structure, meaning it can no longer support the weight of the building. A severe change in humidity or ambient temperature can also impact a house susceptible to further settlement, either because the structural integrity is already compromised, or due to the use of cheaper materials.

Identifying the cause of subsidence is the first step to its solution.This need not be expensive.Removing or even pruning any tree(s) causing subsidence may be enough to halt any further movement. Damaged but non-structural elements should be filled and re-weatherproofed. Chartered surveyors should be able to identify a subsidence problem, while structural engineers may also be required.

RICS Homebuyer Report valuation

Can I get an independent and professional valuation and an estimate of rebuild costs for insurance purposes and how does the surveyor work it out?

A Homebuyer Report on a Northallerton building will include a professional valuation and a reinstatement cost. To ascertain the valuation the valuer will use area knowledge and other considerations about the property e.g. accommodation The valuer will also consider construction methods and draw upon key assumptions like it is connected to mains services. Surveyors will disregard things like sales incentives. RICS valuations assume that there aren't any serious legal issues for example no troublesome covenants. These will be investigated by your solicitor or licensed conveyancer..

Further area assumptions, such as any cost of repairs being shared amongst tenants or water and drainage connectivity, are made as well as any significant Northallerton environmental problems like flightpaths, which are also considered as part of the valuation.

A Building Survey does not include a valuation as standard. A valuation can, however, be added for a small additional fee. Alternatively a Property Valuation Report (PVR) can be carried out.
